1. Whenever I boot my laptop, FIrefox is always downloading an update and it is always the same version i.e. 91.0a1 (2021-07-06) (64-bit)

2. I do not know if it is yyyy.mm.dd or yyyy.dd.mm

Does the Build ID revert to a previous version after the reboot ?

You can check the Build ID on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page.

The date format depends on your location in the world. I always try to use 7 Jul 21 as a date.


Download the full installer and see if that helps.

How do I change the date format then? Also, I still do not know if it is 7th month or 6th in the about page.

It's July 6 for sure.

Nightly updates twice a day by default and yesterday it may have been more than 2 due some introduced bugs.

Hey, so I rebooted my Win11 laptop and Nightly yet again is telling me to update to same number now. This is the 3rd time today.

Any specific reason you use a Nightly build since you aren't aware or willing to accept that it updates more than once each day ?

Maybe DE or Beta is better suited if you want to use a future developer version and not the current release. Beta is currently in 90.0 release candidate state, so DE won't receive updates until 90.0 is released officially.

I know! But the fact that it only updates after each reboot of my system made it look werid.
