1. Open Fennec and slide the screen to the left to bring up Options Menu
2. From Options menu select add-on submenu (puzzle icon)
3. Notice the list of installed add-ons and a list of recommended add-ons at the bottom of the content area. 
4. Click on the "Update" button at right top of the menu (in the Your Addons sections) 



There should be a list of updates for all installed add-on. If no updates are available, there should be a proper notification to announce that and give some
feedback at the press/tap/click on the "Update" button. 



Tapping on "Update" button triggers no action.

Sounds like this is a UI issue: You would like some kind of visible confirmation that Fennec checked for updates, but found none. Is this right?
That's right Mark, thanks
FWIW, I had an old version of Phony 0.2.2, clicked update, and the text appeared saying "A compatibility updated has been applied".   So we need text for when there's no update available.

I can confirm this. I had no add-ons installed, only the pre-installed search plugins. Affter pressing the update button, I don't see any indication that anything has happened.

Furthermore, Update manager seems to install the same update over and over again, if "update" button is tapped on. Is this expected? I believe it would be nice if previously installed updates would be somehow remembered.

We don't want to popup an alert. If you have add-ons installed (real add-ons, not the search providers) then you should see some text appear in the row while we look for updates.

The search providers are not updatable, so they are ignored.

I can make a patch to simply disable the "Update" button if no updatable add-ons are installed.
Attached patch patchSplinter Review
This patch only enables the "Update" button if an updateable add-on has been installed.

During an update check, we change the strings in the add-on rows, so there is a verification that something is happening.

The patch also makes some updates to the add-on code:
* Adds the new extensions.getAddons.cache.enabled pref
* Adds a restart prompt for compatibility updates since the version bump could mean a restart is needed (we check the pendingOperations)
* I rename "addon" -> "update" and use the real addon object in the update observer now too. It's less confusing since the object being returned was not a real addon object, just some data related to the update.

Do we ever re-enable this button?  Hmm, I guess we never need to, since this would only change after installing a new add-on and restarting Fennec.  Okay, nevermind.

Is this used anywhere?

r=mbrubeck with that last question answered.
