Bug 550936 accidentally added some code that assumes the download channel is HTTP.
Created attachment 478105 [details] [diff] [review] patch rev 1 I don't believe that we can automatically test this, there is no ftp test server, but I've manually checked it.

Fixed: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/0c55fdabe021 I think we should have a manual test for installing from ftp sites.
(In reply to comment #1) > I don't believe that we can automatically test this, there is no ftp test > server, but I've manually checked it. But we can test it with Mozmill outside of buildbot. Therefore I would suggest to use the ACR extension (ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/addons/15003/). By using querySelector we can get the latest version of that add-on and run a normal installation routine.
