I added to my addon a new permission…
Some of my colleagues at work asked me today why they have not the latest of my addon installed. I advised via phone please check in addon manager and make right to addon and select find updates. Nothing works. No message that there is a update, no popup for new permission, no popup for installing addon. Decided time for a visit. In the office i tried also to trigger the update manually and inspected the console. Again no message no sign that a update is available or in progress, nothing. Take a look to the right corner and found the yellow exclamation mark and set the permission. Voala. The background update search had already added this symbol and was waiting for attention.
If you believe it or not there are users in this world which will not discover such a yellow symbol and will never get such an addon update… They give such an symbol no attention and likely if they see it every day they keep it for normal after some days.
Next one, also at next browser start the symbol is going away and the users would need to wait until next update interval (86400s). In fact there was SEVERAL users since DAYS online without to get the addon update!
What do you think, about this background addon update process for new addon permission?
