Seen while performing update testing on the Firefox 3.6 Beta 5. This is using the 2009-12-04 OS drop.


Machine 1:

1. Fresh Factory Reset with Machine 1 - Beta 2 installed by default.
2. Check for updates -> I receive an update offer for B3 instead of B5

Machine 2:

1. Fresh Factory Reset. Rename the Firefox directory (in this OS drop there is no way to uninstall Firefox). Even though the directory has been renamed, when I run the cab file it still recognizes that Firefox is installed on the machine so it is more a pave over install.
2. Install the Beta 3 from the releases directory.
3. Check for updates - I am offered the update to B4 instead of B5.

Can we fix this at 3.6rc1 or do we need to do it before then ?

In particular the following lines were missing:
        past-update   3.6b2 3.6b3 betatest releasetest beta
        past-update   3.6b3 3.6b4 betatest releasetest beta

The update path from b2 -> b3 -> b4 -> b5, tortuous though it is, does exist so lets fix it up when we build 3.6rc1.

Is there a direct update path from b2 -> b5 or will there be from b2 -> rc? I believe that we expect devices to ship with b2, that right, dolske?

I'm not sure of their shipping schedule; my impression was they haven't shipped yet, so the first devices should have an OS build with a newer Firefox. I think the last OS build we got had beta 4, as I was able to update it to Beta 5 earlier today with no problem.
