Two add-ons update every time I open Firefox; same versions, over and over.

Posted

NoScript and Download Helper launch updates every time I open Firefox (latest ver). If I close browser, they launch again immediately.

You can check the home page setting:

  • Tools > Options > General > Startup: Home page

Firefox supports multiple home pages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols.

You can check for problems with preferences.

Thanks, Fred. Tried that and tried it again, restarting between attempts. No dice. Firefox still wants to download both every time. I can even apply my license to Download Helper. It runs while Firefox is open, but tries to reinstall DLH next time I open Firefox.

Problem seems to have resolved itself. Related to a new scanning utility, but publisher denied being the cause. Thanks for the help folks!
