Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20130301 Firefox/22.0
Build ID: 20130301030909

Steps to reproduce:

Install http://cloud.intowindows.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Get-Windows-8-Start-Screen-Look-In-Firefox.jpg on Win 7 in Nightly 22.0al 


Actual results:

Nightly shut down automatically when installation was complete. 

It didnot restart nor request permission to restart the browser with the new add-on installed. 


Expected results:

Nightly should have closed or shut down after requesting the user's permisssion. 
This functionality of the browser is insecure on user's perspective when working with mail accounts online.

The Firefox -> Installer component is for the Firefox installer and not the installer for add-ons. Moving to correct component.
Component: Installer → Add-ons Manager
Product: Firefox → Toolkit
Arthi, is this issue still reproducible on your end (please use the latest Nightly - https://nightly.mozilla.org/)? If yes, could you please attach the add-on mentioned in description.

You provided an invalid add-on link and I was unable to test it.

No reply from reporter after 2 years. Likely not valid with WebExtensions in Firefox 57, so closing.
