When does uBlock Origin Updater actually update? I have uBlock Origin 1.16.4 installed, but the latest firefox legacy is 1.16.4.2. Why? Allow beta versions is checked.

This happens both when you manually or automatically check for updates.

Do you use the latest version of the updater?

Allow beta versions is checked.

You can uncheck it, since no more beta versions are expected in the xul branch.

Yes I was using 1.6.3. Anyway, it's working today (and after a reboot). But if I uncheck allow beta, the update notification for 1.16.4.2 goes away.

Ublock Origin Updater does not update the latest version of UBO

Unread postby Sampei Nihira » Sun, 20 Jan 2019, 11:49

Out Ublock Origin Legacy 1.16.4.7:

https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/releases/tag/1.16.4.7

But it is not detected by Ublock Origin Updater.

@ Just Off

Please verify.

I think this might be gorhill's fault.
Looks like he forgot to add the "Legacy" tag @ GitHub.

Anyway, the fix included in v1.16.4.7 doesn't work:

why not just update manually from the github site.?it takes seconds to do and i always do it like that.i see no point in using the updater as its once in a blue moon when a new legacy version comes out and the future of the legacy version is uncertain anyhow and is probably on borrowed time now.

Exactly, I notified gorhill about this, hopefully he will fix it soon.

It seemed to me you already got an answer about this. Let's not start this discussion again and let everyone use an update method convenient for him.

The issue is now resolved by gorhill, by using the proper tag name:

The future of the WebExtension version is equally uncertain if not bleak. https://malwaretips.com/threads/the-dea ... now.89780/

I beg you to find another place to discuss this toxic offtopic. Thank you for understanding.
