MAR file location changed?

Hi,

We have been using MAR files to automatically patch Firefox following the steps at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Software_Update:Manually_Installing_a_MAR_file. However, the directory http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest/ directory no longer exists and has been replaced with a README.txt documenting how to use the download.mozilla.org web service.

Is there a new location for update MAR files, or even better, a way to use the releases web service to obtain a MAR?

Thanks,

Chosen solution

You need to download the MAR files from the directory of the current release. The latest release directory no longer exists as you have noticed.

You can construct a URL like this with the current version and the version you want to update to.

That will give you a MAR file if this partial update is available.
