Many thanks JustOff. I didn't even know I could install uBlock Origin in Thunderbird until this thread - sweet :thumbup:

I tried installing this in SeaMonkey 2.48 (in Ubuntu 14.04), and I got an error message that it was not compatible. Looking at the install.rdf, I did not see the code for SeaMonkey or Firefox, just Pale Moon.

UPDATE: The file I downloaded from the Pale Moon Add-ons Site only had PM support. When I went to github and downloaded the archive there, the install.rdf had both SeaMonkey & Fx support in addition to PM. I didn't expect there to be a difference, so I didn't check until I thought of it just now.

BTW, will you be adding this to the AMO for SeaMonkey & Thunderbird?

There is a special note about this on APO.

No, I don't have such plans.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

Yes, now I see where it points you to GitHub. But why is there a difference in the first place? :?:

In short: this is because APO can serve add-ons update only for Pale Moon.

Updater doesnt detect latest uBlock release on Github: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/releases/tag/1.14.12

Probably because v1.14.12 is labeled "Pre-release".

The "Latest release" version is still v1.14.10:

I used the "Check for Updates" in the PM add-ons page and uBock Origin (as well as other add-ons) updated successfully just using this method.

The label for v1.14.12 was just changed to "Latest release", so perhaps the updater will work now?

Yep, just worked for me. Did a "Check for Updates" just now and it updated 1.14.10 to 1.14.12.

I downloaded v1.14.12 when it was "pre-release." I wonder if there's any difference between the "pre-release" and latest release? I'm guessing not since the pre-release v1.14.12 is no longer listed.

That's odd, I had just recently (a couple of days ago) updated to v1.14.10 using the Add-on page "Check for updates" which worked that time, but now that I'm aware of v1.14.12 as posted here in this topic, I tried again just now to do the same "Check for Updates" and I do not get an update is available notification for v1.14.12. :?

There is nothing strange here, 1.14.12 was initially published as a pre-release, then changed to release and will be picked up by uB0 Updater at the next regular (once a day) or manual check.

Sorry for the confusion, but I did a "manual check" in the PM Add-ons page (top-right of page) as I did last time to get previous update and as others have done recently to get current update and in my case the "View available updates" does not display uBlock Origin as having an update available (for v1.14.12).... Sorry as well if I'm using improper nomenclature...

Well, try to set extensions.logging.enabled=true in about:config, do manual update again and check the browser console for the line that contains uBlock0@raymondhill.net. There should be: "addons.update-checker DEBUG Found an update entry for uBlock0@raymondhill.net version 1.14.12".

I got updated to v. .12 today, although extensions.logging.enabled is set to false.

My previous message had a very specific addressee. No one should start debugging if everything works properly 8-)

Fair enough, just letting folks know that the update to v. x.12 was working properly.

What I get in the browser console is the following:
1507558909276 addons.update-checker DEBUG Requesting https://addons.palemoon.org/integration ... led&appID={8de7fcbb-c55c-4fbe-bfc5-fc555c87dbc4}&appVersion=27.5.0&appOS=WINNT&appABI=x86-msvc&locale=en-US&currentAppVersion=27.5.0&updateType=97&compatMode=normal
1507558910616 addons.update-checker DEBUG Found an update entry for uBlock0@raymondhill.net version 1.13.8
Which doesn't make a whole lot of sense since I already have uBo v1.14.10 and my goal is to update to v1.14.12 of course... And what I mean by what is "odd" is that I was able to update successfully from an older uBo version to v1.14.10 just a couple of days ago without any problem doing the same thing I'm doing now (clicking on "check for updates") before (without) needing to flip the pref extensions.logging.enabled to true.

I'm sorry, but could you please verify that uB0 Updater isn't disabled?
