Automatic updates to Adblock Plus 1.3.10 temporarily disabled [Update] · 2011-09-29 07:49 by Wladimir Palant
Yesterday I asked Mozilla to put Adblock Plus 1.3.10 into the sandbox again to disable automatic updates. This is not because anything is wrong with Adblock Plus 1.3.10, it is actually because of a bug in Firefox 7 — updating the browser while an extension update is pending makes that extension disappear from the list. Mozilla promised a solution in the next few days at which point the automatic updates can be enabled again.
If you are already running Firefox 7 you can still install Adblock Plus 1.3.10 manually from our homepage, it is perfectly safe. If you already got hit by the bug and Adblock Plus is no longer in your extensions list — enabling or disabling some other extension is enough to bring it back.
Update (2011-09-30): Firefox 7.0.1 is out and Adblock Plus can be updated the usual way again. For anybody who had Adblock Plus disappear after updating to Firefox 7, updating to Firefox 7.0.1 should bring it back.
