Hi, since update 106.0.2 I'm not able to update installed addons. It's just telling me that there would be no updates. Checking the console I see "addons.update-checker WARN HTTP Request failed for an unknown reason". I also tried it in troubleshoot mode. It's the same error. Does anyone have an idea?

I did some further investigating and nailed it down to HTTPS Everywhere being installed (but deactivated). Having this addon installed (also when deactivated) causes this problem. I think it might block the HTTP communication of the addons.update-checker even when deactivated.
