I got a notice today that Firefox had automatically downloaded an update (to 3.6.9). I have not told it to install yet, because I want to save the file to apply to 3 other computers without downloading it 4 times. (we have 2 desktops and 2 laptops running windows; I already know where the package manager cache is for the linux partitions.)
I've looked in %temp% (recursively), %userprofile%\application data\, %userprofile%\local settings\application data\,%allusersprofile%\application data, %allusersprofile%\local settings\application data,%programfiles%\common files\ , also checked application data and local settings\application data in Administrator, LocalService and NetworkService user subdirs... but there's no firefox subdir in any of those, either... and I looked in %programfiles%\Firefox\, of course... oh, and also in the Tools->Downloads folder... no luck.
Clicking the Details link on the notification dialog doesn't tell me where the downloaded file is.
I'd really rather not waste my bandwidth downloading the same multi-MB update 4 times. I've turned off the auto-update now, but where is the auto-downloaded file stored, and why do you make it so hard to find???
I can hardly believe nobody's asked this before, but I searched for it a half dozen different ways before I gave up and posted this.
