User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:2.0b4) Gecko/20100818 Firefox/4.0b4 Build Identifier: Thunderbird offered me an update to 3.1.3 today; the update dialog included a "details" link, which normally takes you to the release notes so you know what you're about to install. This link currently is a 404 error: http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/3.1.3/releasenotes/ Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to 'Apply downloaded update' in Thunderbird 2. Click 'Details' link 3. Browser opens http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/3.1.3/releasenotes/ Actual Results: http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/3.1.3/releasenotes/ gives a 404 error. Expected Results: http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/3.1.3/releasenotes/ should contain release notes.
Note that the welcome screen *after* updating has a different release notes URL, which does work: http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/3.1.xrc/releasenotes/ Particularly when being offered early beta updates, a working notes link *before* updating would be very much appreciated. :)
from IRC "if the release notes link worked, then i'd know it was a beta release Aleksej: do you know if the release notes URL in the update dialog is included with the update info from the server, or if it's generated by the currently-installed Thunderbird from the given future version number? brion_: don't know… I usually don't use application updates. I mean, I usually don't give them write permissions."
(In reply to comment #2) To be clear, in that quote, Brion’s messages are: > "if the release notes link worked, then i'd know it was a beta release > Aleksej: do you know if the release notes URL in the update dialog is included > with the update info from the server, or if it's generated by the > currently-installed Thunderbird from the given future version number?
This is a duplicate of bug 584679 which I missed getting resolved for 3.1.3, I'll get it on the radar for the next version though.
