update server keeps applying the same update
we have recently built and eployed a Firefox uodate server yto deploy to our internal network. However, whilst the update works it is constantly re-applying the seame update. Update is 68.4.2 esr. running with a few policies but no add ons.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0
If you have trouble with the upgrade, use this link; http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/
the issue is not the update per se, but that it keeps apply ing the same update.
Installing the current should correct the problem with updating.
Is the update server sending a update.xml each time Firefox connects?
Normally you only get a update.xml file if there is an update available. If you always get this XML file then Firefox might try to install the Firefox version present in this file. You can possibly check this in the Browser Console and open "Help -> About Firefox" or use "Options/Preferences" to initiate a check.
I don't know how this works if you install an update server locally.
That link is the one I followed to set up the up date server. I am guessing that the first line of this answer is the clue to solving my issue. Iwill experiment.
