Re: [FireFox] Adblock Plus 2.2.2 for Firefox released

Looks like the internal update checking still has no clue about it.

Mine has not auto-updated since I've been running the app.

Mine never auto-updates but then I turn auto-update off on everything that resides on my PC except for Virus Signature updates and ABPs filter subscription.

Anyway, I just got it via the internal manual add-on update check.

Must put this on my Mozilla to-do list of things to learn in my relative n00bie-ness with Mozilla & Mozilla app updating

Firefox checks for Add-on updates once per day.
Wide time frame there, plus the Add-on has to pass QA before Mozilla let's it go out, so it's a waiting game.

People using development builds are getting the latest update generally before stable releases are seen.

With the loss of MR Tech Toolkit combined with custom security restrictions on Firefox here, Add-on Update Checker provides control over add-on updating and has worked really well for a couple years now.

Well, I had some add-ons updating and I clicked on the option: "Reset All Add-ons To Update Manually". That Add-On does look interesting though.

I just installed the Add On Update Checker. Where is the toolbar button for it located? I don't see one.

I miss Mr. Tech.

Many of us still miss MR Tech

La Luna set up the options + (always show toolbar button).

Right-click on empty space on toolbar, click 'customize' and drag it where you want it. (round icon with arrow in center)

------------------------

Left-click on the icon manual check for updates, right-click opens Add-ons Manager.

Depending on frequency of checking chosen, when there are updates available the icon will turn blue - slide the mouse pointer up to it and it will show the available updates.

Thank you. I looked in the choices under customize last night, either it wasn't there then, or I missed it. It's there now!
