Very handy, a good solution for folks who still want control over their environment. The ability to filter certain extensions is handy for developers as well.
I'm going to assume this is Stylish's fault, but userstyles will only update through the Add-ons Manager. Is there a workaround for this issue?
great addon - thank you :-)
Apart from the very irritating restart popup message that appears in the address bar, the addon is very cool. It's a pretty nice descendant of an older similar addon.
- Make the restart popup appear where the toolbar icon is (if visible) and not on the start of the addressbar.
- Make the restart popup window disappear after a configurable timeout (3-5 seconds would be nice as default) and NEVER appear again, unless another addon is updated. It's extremely irritating to stop your work to close the popup, only for it to appear everytime you open/close a new tab. OK, i updated my addons, i DO NOT want to restart, period. No need to be reminded every 5 seconds.
- Time between checks could also contain a "3 hours" period. For those people working 8 hrs a day, it may be convenient to check twice a day for new addons.
The built-in popup mechanism will only open at the start of the address bar. I have seen other extensions that use something that looks similar, but they make the popup internally to their extension. I'm not going to do that. There is also no way to hide the door hanger automatically without also hiding the icon, so I don't want to add that either. However, there is a "hidden" setting you might want to activate (it will probably make it into the options page someday.) Enter about:config in the address bar and search for extensions.UpdateAddon.LessAggressive . Double-click to set it to true. The popup will stop coming back on tab selection. If you don't want to do that, you could also select "Hide this notification" from the drop down in the popup itself (the arrow next to "Install updates"), but you have to do that every time you get an update. While you are in the about:config, you can also select 3 hours between checks. Set extensions.UpdateAddon.CheckTime to 3 . I have looked into making the drop down in the options panel an input box as well, but so far I haven't came up with a way I like that has the drop downs and allows input. Maybe in a future version though.
Add-on Update Checker 2.0 works like a charm with FF 10.0.7 ESR. No more RAM needed with this extension. Thanks Chris!
Every time I hit the icon, the green "working" symbol goes on forever and ever and ever and ever. I don't understand the positive ratings. Am I missing something?
It helps me to speed up firefox start enormously. Without the "Add-on Update Checker": 32 seconds, with "Add-on Update Checker": only 6 seconds!
Thank you very much!
Супер! Класс!! Выше всяческих похвал!!!
Just thought I should leave some feedback on version 2.0beta2. I find annoying the change in the persistent across 5 urls update notifying popup. Version 2.0beta1 was perfect when the popup went away upon changing the tab.
Response to developer:
Thanks for that option. Upgrading to beta 3.
I just posted 2.0 beta 3. I've added hidden option you can get to through about:config
set to true and notifications won't come back on tab change. The icon still shows in the url bar through 5 url changes, but the popup shouldn't come back.
The 1.13 beta versions have been working well, any plans to graduate them to stable soon?
I have one more beta to post (additions to the settings page and one variable I didn't initialize properly that could show a warning even though it worked.) I think it will become the final version after translation. I plan on posting it here and on Babelzilla (for translation) in the next few days. I'll probably give the translators a week before I post it here as a stable release (it takes a few weeks after I post it for Mozilla to review it and release it after that, so I'd guess a month before final release.)
It appears that this could be a good alternative to the other add-on called 'Update Notifier'..... But the latter cooperates with FF Updater as they both get the same updates at the same time. The UN has a small button icon you can put on any toolbars you have as well it can be shown in the status tray. Check it out..... p5
Wel first thing to say, it work as it have to. Great. But what I don't like about this add-on is the BIG UGLY toolbar button. With update notifier you had a small one. That was really nicer (in my opninion). Now a day I use it on my crap machine, and on my "normal" machine i update Thunderbird by hand not with this Add-on. When ther will be a small button, I will use it also on my "normal" machine.
Last but not least, Keep up the good work (and try to make the button compact in the future).
Another user (rob64rock) created a userstyle that hides the drop marker and menu until an update is found which makes the button look like the one from Update notifier http://userstyles.org/styles/53823/fx-6-hide-ext-auc-button-dropmarker-if-not-needed . You can use Stylish or userChrome.css to use it. I'm using that specific button style (built-in to Firefox) so you can just click the button instead of having to go to a sub menu to check for updates. I will not be changing that.
Although I do love automatic updating on startup, the inaccessibility from Firefox menu is huge bummer.
Hopefully coming in the next version (after 1.12 which is already awaiting Mozilla review.)
Can you please tell how to add name of the Add-on to the blacklist?
Go to About:config (in the url bar.) Enter extensions.UpdateAddon.BlackList into the filter box. Double-click that entry (or right-click and select modify.) Type names of themes/extensions/plugins/etc., separated with a comma, into the box and click OK. The next time the extension runs they won't be checked. It will be much easier when I release the next version. An entry will show up in the extension's options page. I'm going to wait until tomorrow for translations and then will post it here. It will take a few weeks to be reviewed and approved by the editors.
Nice work !
Work well and add this missing functionnality to Firefox.
A little bug: the caption of the extension in the update tooltip (http://img684.imageshack.us/img684/3056/updateee.png).
I think it's fixed with version 1.9 (not reviewed yet, but can be found under "Version Information" > "Version 1.8" link.) Although I was never able to reproduce the error, instead of filling the tooltip as extensions report back, now I wait until they all report back and then fill the tooltip from an array.
Everything stable now... very strange.. maybe some other addon didn't work well together with AUC. Anyways full stars now :)
Thanks for this extension that replace upadte notifier, that now seems discontinued.
Now that this extension has popups, the only feature I miss is a right click menu on the icon, with voices such as "install all updates" (without open addons page), "reboot firefox", install and reboot, "options".
So the icon could work this way:
- left click: check for updates
- right click: opens context menu
- double (left) click: opens addons manager (now performed by right click menu).
Five stars upon trust and for the good work!
I doubt I'll be able to do this. I posted a full explanation of the support page.
So is it an "addon" or "add-on" - that is the question. :)
Seriously though, this add-on is the best. I love it and am very grateful that you wrote it. It is so nice having the icon in the toolbar and not have to open a separate tab, select the "check for updates" from the dropdown, then wait to see what's new. The ability to see when updates are available at a glance and install them when *I* want is AWESOME. Thank you!
I was tired of addons either being updated automatically without my knowledge or not being updated unless I manually did a check. This addon solves my problems in a nice and simple way.
Thanks for reimplementing this feature!
Your browser does not work pale moon
I tried with Pale Moon 5 and it worked for me. Pale Moon 3 won't work if it is based on Firefox 3.6. I recommend everyone goes to Options > Advanced > Update > deselect 'Add-ons' otherwise Firefox (Pale Moon) could automatically find an update, and when this add-on checks it will report there is an update, but won't list which one since it is already installed, but not completed by restarting.
As Update notifier broke since FF4.0 it was a matter of time til some will pick the towel.
It works fine, it looks nice, and it makes it easier to stay updated.
I'm missing the tooltip saying which updates are available and the option to install the update from the addon bar, I hope it will come soon.
Keep the good work.
Version 1.4 adds a tooltip that shows name and new version available. I most likely won't be adding a full menu with options to install/restart.
howdy y'all,fab! this nicely replaces the old update notifier. the firefox version is equally nifty.take care,lee
I, too, was perturbed with Mozilla for the same reason as the developer: updates performed behind the user's back without any prior notification. This annoying practice occurred not only with Firefox but with Thunderbird and SeaMonkey as well. Add-on Update Checker 1.3 perfectly resolves the problem for all three programs.
I heartily agree with the previous reviewers: this add-on splendidly fills the void left by the demise of Update Notifier. While it is puzzling how the add-on is hosted on a Mozilla.org web site with a disclaimer that "This add-on has not been reviewed by Mozilla," many thanks are in order to the developer for a job well done!
I've been looking for a replacement for Update Notifier since support had been dropped beginning with Firefox v4.0. Not only does this add-on replace Update Notifier, it blows it out of the water!!! Even if Update Notifier were still being supported, I would have switched to this add-on instead. Excellent!!! And thank you so much!
Good replacement for now unsupported Update Notifier add-on. Thanks.
