Thread: Firefox 3.6 overwrites updateURL

  1. Firefox 3.6 overwrites updateURL

    I'll give it another try and make it short:

    When I manually check for an update with rightclick -> Find Updates,
    Firefox 3.6 checks "https://versioncheck.addons.mozilla.org" instead
    of the updateURL I added to my install.rdf.

    This problem only occurs in Firefox 3.6.
    I tested my extension with 4 different versions of Firefox 3.5.* and
    everytime I get the "Update available" message.

    What's wrong?

    install.rdf:

    Any ideas what I did wrong?

  2. Re: Firefox 3.6 overwrites updateURL

    I checked the extensions.rdf in my firefox profile:
    The installation didn't add the metadata. Why?

    Same problem occurs on another machine with Firefox 3.6.

    Damn, that's the problem and it's very strange because every Firefox
    3.5.* version doesn't have this problem.
    Then how to write special chars into the install.rdf?
    First word should be "für", the second one: "DasÖrtliche".

    Maybe I'll just write that without the special chars but that's very
    strange...

    Nope. Firefox prints "unknown entity" in the console when using
    ü
