Background updates

Owner: Ehsan (Dev), Vlad Ghetiu (QA)

  • want to start refactoring mozmill tests on Nightly branch to account for background update -- is it enabled on Nightly or are there test builds with updates we can reference?

Updated workflow for updating users with incompatible add-ons

Owner: Rob, Chris, Ioana Budnar (QA)

  • No progress. This will likely be a feature of Firefox 14 or 15 as other work has been prioritized ahead of this work.

Getting the word out


  • Found a bug last week related to Windows System Restore causing updates not to be found -- Rob is working on it -- should we be testing around this more closely? (bug 730285)
    • No. There is a longer term plan to create restore points. Nothing to do in the short term.
