Today my Firefox 188.8.131.52 install opened a software update dialog with "an update is available, Firefox 184.108.40.206" with the normal restart & later options. I believe this means that the background update file was already downloaded (no idea it was partial or full). I clicked on the release notes link & it indeed took me to 220.127.116.11 notes. I checked the about dialog, and it did say 18.104.22.168 The later restart came up with the update start page, and the about dialog says 22.214.171.124. During start, I did notice a Add-on incompatibility dialog, which said Java Console was no longer compatible, which is weird because I have never installed it & it isn't in the list of Add-on Extensions. Clicking on Help->Check for Updates... does show a dialog with: An update for Firefox is available: Firefox 126.96.36.199 ... [Download & Install Now] Not sure if this has happened to many users, but I expect most would be very confused with the process, presuming they knew about versioning & remembered which one they were running. Actually that seems unlikely, but from their perspective, they would be getting two consecutive updates in quick succession :-(
Please see Bug 375710 for more information about the downgrade. Can you post the about string from Firefox here in this Bug (its under help -> about Firefox and should look like this: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20070501 Firefox/184.108.40.206) The Java Console issue sounds like Bug 364390
Hi Carsten, the about string is: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20070219 Firefox/18.104.22.168 I'm sure this is a dup of Bug 375710, sorry for the hassle. My bugzilla search didn't show anything open, but resolved caused too big of a list. I should of refined it by including 22.214.171.124. For some reason I presumed it was an open bug, because it hit me, but given the fix, wouldn't show up till 126.96.36.199 (given the 188.8.131.52 branch landing), doh!!
