Description M ODonnell 2012-05-11 11:58:07 PDT
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:15.0) Gecko/15.0 Firefox/15.0a1
Build ID: 20120511030513

Steps to reproduce:

Allowed Nightly to update itself.

Actual results:

The first attempt to invoke the "Check For Updates" behavior via the Help->AboutNightly dialog always fails (times out, fails to connect) on the first attempt and always succeeds (connects) on the second try.

Expected results:

One attempt should be enough, assuming network and server are functioning.

Have you got NoScript installed? I see this too, but only when NoScript is enabled.
Comment 2 M ODonnell 2012-05-12 06:58:53 PDT
Ah.  Indeed, the behavior in question is only observed when NoScript is enabled. Is that CheckForUpdates operation implemented as Javascript?  And although this particular behavior is admittedly not a showstopper problem in itself I wonder if this may be a symptom of more profound interactions between NoScript and Firefox - that would be bad since NoScript is such an important tool...

It should be fixed by NoScript 2.4.2rc2 from -- thank you for reporting.
