Can you please detail steps to test this?
Can you please provide detail steps to test this?
(In reply to Samvedana (:Samvedana) from comment #5) > Can you please provide detail steps to test this? Sure! From a clean state the option in about:config called: app.update.mode should be set to 1.
You can also check: Options | Advanced | Update The checkbox Warn me if this will disable any of my add-ons should be checked on.
A third test is to select update only desktop, turn off the checkbox for addon compat, select metro + desktop updates again (this will disable the checkbox). Press OK to save the options. Go back to the same page, you should see that the disabled checkbox for add-on compat is checked on.
