Description Al Billings [:abillings] 2010-11-05 17:43:45 PDT
It was noticed today that if you do a manual check for updates in a current 1.9.1 nightly build, you will be offered an update to "3.5.16pre". This update will be the same build as you already have.

I'm running Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv: Gecko/20101105 Shiretoko/3.5.16pre and I keep getting offered a new build if I manually check and it is the same build after I restart for the update. 

The culprit may be the checkin two days ago into the 1.9.1 update code but I'm not sure. See 

Logging this under RelEng as requested by John O'Duinn.

Could that be happening because of the following patch which has been landed on 1.9.1 and now quits earlier with a JS error: "abi" not defined?
Comment 2 Henrik Skupin (:whimboo) 2010-11-05 18:03:25 PDT
Fixing this broken check-in solved the problem for me and no more update is listed. So it's clearly a regression from bug 552924.

Adding Mozmill whiteboard entry because we detected this with our Mozmill test-runs.

The follow-up patch which has been landed on bug 552924, didn't fix the problem for me gAbi is still undefined:

Error: reference to undefined property "gAbi"

Line: 1155

If you manually added that I would expect that error. It should be gABI which is what landed.

Gotcha! That's it. Now it's working fine. Thanks Rob!

As Al discovered we also have to push this fix to 1.9.2.
Comment 7 Henrik Skupin (:whimboo) 2010-11-07 15:14:32 PST
On 1.9.2 it's not a problem with this patch. Nick was able to fix the update problem server-side. So no need for this patch on 1.9.2, even it would be useless, because there is nothing to fix.
