Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1) Install an old version of an add-on, click update all add-ons, wait until that add-on starts updating (easier to reproduce with an add-on that takes longer to download) 2) Double click / Show more information on Add-on (shows normal interface, no updating UI) 3) Click "Back to extensions" Actual Results: 4a) Instead of seeing the Add-on downloading it looks normal as if no update is in progress 4b) When Add-on finishes downloading you get the red outline but no restart butt... only the normal disable / uninstall buttons. (see attached) Expected Results: Clicking back to extensions should have shown the progress bar of the Add-on downloading and when it was finished the red outline should have come as well as the restart button.
Note: If you close AOM and then reopen/reload add-ons part of AOM the dialogue will read "Restart" instead of remove / disable.

So refreshing the AOM did the trick to show what should have displayed? I was going to say not all add-ons should need restarts, I wondered if it had completed before you switched back over. But it sounds like that is not the case from comment 1.
Which extension is it you tried? Version? What method did you use to install it? It would help for trying to reproduce.
Do you have an example add-on we could use? And given your comment 0 you probably forgot to attach your screenshot?
(In reply to comment #3) > Which extension is it you tried? Version? What method did you use to install > it? It would help for trying to reproduce. I used Weave, updating from 1.3 beta to 1.3. I used the method of entering AOM, manually searching for updates and having it download. (sorry about that!)
(In reply to comment #5) > Created an attachment (id=449267) [details] > AOM Error - should show restart If you look at the menu gray bar in the AOM it says it was downloaded and shows restart now to complete installation. Was Weave beta installed before? And I guess the question is should the gray bar and the circled add-on show the button behavior in this case? I guess if an add-on was already installed, I could see the old version was still able to be removed/disabled (detail area) at this stage of the upgrade, and the new version is waiting for restart (header area) based on the scenario.
It does say that at the top, but shouldn't the bottom look like it does in this screenshot?
The case for the restart button is fixed. We simply do not show the download progress under such a condition. Updating summary to reflect the current behavior.
