Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7

The Firefox auto update keeps indicating that there is a new version of locate_in_bookmark_folders extension available (reported as 1.0), since the filename indicates that it is 1.0.  However, the install.rdf in the .xpi says that it is 0.2.4, which is the version that I currently have installed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. After installing the latest version of locate_in_bookmark_folders extension
2. Click on Updates Available icon to install "update"
3. Restart Firefox and notice that no update has taken place (0.2.4 is latest)
4. Repeat every time the Updates Available icon indicates that there is an update available :-)

There was a bug for a short time in the upload form that replaced the extension version with the app version.  This has been fixed, but it appears you uploaded your extension before it was fixed.

The best way to solve this would probably be to keep the current version, as it's already been done and whoever has downloaded 1.0 will not receive updates if we go back to 0.2.4.

Although, I understand that this is probably not a great thing to hear.  If you would like, we could delete the 1.0 version and resubmit delete the correct 0.2.4 version.

I could expedite the approval of this so that the 1.0 version is replaced ASAP.  Let me know what you want to do.

I have also reported this bug on November 15. Anyway, I marked it as a duplicate of this bug.

Michael, I have just deleted the version marked as "1.0" from AMO and resubmitted "0.2.4". Everything seems to work fine regarding the version. If you can expedite the approval of the extension I would really appreciate it. It seems that quite a few people have been bitten by the updating loop problem.

Thank you,

Approved -- looks like it worked.  I apologize for the confusion caused by the regression.  In about half an hour the .xpi file will be available on FTP.  Let me know if you see anything else strange.  Thanks.  :)

Just checked with both Fx 1.0 and 1.5 and the update is not triggered anymore. Thank you for your quick approval!
