When a globally installed extension is updated, the updated extension is installed to the currently running profile. For example: 1) Have GreaseMonkey 0.6.2 installed globally (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\extensions) 2) GreaseMonkey 0.6.4 comes out 3) Click "Update" to install the update in the extension manager 4) Restart the browser Expected Results: The global extension is updated so all profiles are now using the updated version Actual Results: The global extension version is still 0.6.2 and the update (0.6.4) is installed to the profile extension directory and not available to all profiles.
This may be bug #300967, but I wasnt entirely sure it was the same thing. Feel free to close this one if bug #300967 is the right one.
