Why not update for Linux mechanism works?

Firefox informed me this morning that an update was available. In the small window in which this information came, there was a button marked "Update Now". I pressed the button and showed a gray horizontal bar with a short dark color bar moving from left to right. The text in the window says that Firefox has been updated. Unfortunately, that "update" can go on forever with nothing to show for it. So finally, I have to close the window myself (using the window manager).

So my question is: why the update mechanism does not work for Linux?

You have write rights to the Firefox installation folder?

You are using a Firefox installation from the repositories of your Linux distribution or you installed Firefox yourself?

If you used the deposits then you need to update via your software management.

Otherwise, you may need to be updated as long as user root.

  • Firefox will not allow the module because "do not update for Firefox 29,0" even on update modules.

    I recently newly installed firefox 29.0.1 on my Android phone. Several modules that work very well on my laptop with Firefox 29,0 claim to be 'not updated for Firefox 29,0"

    for 'Reporter compatibility add-on' and the 'Greasemonkey' add-on, the site was actually a message in red under a gray button 'add to Firefox' who says 'not updated for Firefox 29.0 ".

    For the add-on "Leechblock", the site allows me to download, but after downloading a message saying "Leechblock could not be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 29.0.1.

    All these modules work fine on my computer, and the support for them sites claim that they have been updated, so I'm at a loss as to why they do not work.

    On the view of the Office of addons.mozilla.org , there a version information section that can be extended if you click on it. For example https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/stylish/

    > Works with Firefox for Android 14.0 - 32.0, Firefox 4.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later, Thunderbird 5.0 and later
    

    If the extension does not Firefox for Android in its version information section, it is not compatible.

  • So, for the 3rd TIME WHEN I REQUEST SUPPLICANT why NOT update only FF updated my browser?

    You see, I ask myself this same question twice before, because Firefox has once more for the third time last updated browser DESPITE MY PLAIDANT ASK TWICE BEFORE NOT to DO SO. but now I have a platform to make public DISHONESY of Firefox, put to task for defying a very adamant demand, specifically NOT UPDATE MY BROWSER, CIRCUMSTANCES THAT systematically, repeatedly occurred throughout all these years I've been with Firefox since 2005.

    How is it that Firefox continues to deliberately defy, ignore the wishes of its customers most loyal me inflamed beyond words, when I repeatedly made KNOWN QUITE WELL NOT to HAVE MY BROWSER updated.

    BUT NOW, AFTER ALL THIS TIME, TOGETHER WITH THE INSIGHT I HAVE RUN AS ONE INDUSTRY COMPUTER SPECIALIST I know very well why Firefox CONTINUES THIS PRACTICE WITH ABANDON.

    1. they do not like anyone was sleeping with the subject: config (then why did you never included it in the first place) as I do.

    2. they don't like anyone made modules incompatible extensions again as I do.

    3. they do not like someone tampering Firefox as I do.

    And all Firefox should do to reduce to nothing all the meticulous work I spend change about: config. configurations to accommodate my own and the needs of my company and all the hard work. spend time of activation of newly incompatible extensions, I need to work as effectively as possibleamong other things that I tweaked, THAT I EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO for THE REASONS I GAVE. YOU deliberately, to DO so hatefully. And that's the final reason for YOUR contempt total without taking account of the request of a customer. In addition, YOU, fIREFOX feel that since you wrote the code, and the owner of the code, YOU can insist USERS to follow the protocols of Firefox exactly as I ask.

    Another example of YOUR dictatorial to browse the web - what approach YOU feel that no one should dare to take a peek to content that is not the level of WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS purity AND ALL OTHER CONTENT CORROMPRE THE MORALS OF OUR YOUTH.

    In one of the cases where my browser has been updated despite my unyielding position against it, someone in YOUR ORGANIZATION has removed several sites for adults STRICTLY STRAIGHT to my favorites.

    SO now, NOT ONLY DO you HAVE AN ATTITUDE INTRUSIVE big BROTHER THAT NOBODY DARE DEVIATE FROM the OFFICIAL FIREFOX BROWSING PROTOCOLS BUT NOW YOU have put in PLACE A CENSURER CAMPAIGN ON WHAT YOU CAN READ, WATCH at all SIMPLY BOOKMARK or.

    BUT IT IS EVEN WORSE, MUCH WORSE. THE LAST TIME TWO YOU UPDATED MY BROWSER AGAINST MY WILL, YOU GAVE ME THE REASON MORE LAME MORE STUPID, INSULTING, STUPID WHY YOU UPDATED TWICE BEFORE AS IF THEY WERE JUST CIRCUMSTANCES THAT OTHERWISE NEVER WOULD HAVE VIOLATED AS WELL AS THE PRIVACY BEING THE TERRIBLE REBEL COMMERCIAL PRACTICES, ARROGANT AND SIMPLY TO YOUR MITIGATING CUSTOMER. BUT NOW IN ADDITION TO PROVE YOURSELF TO BE A MEGALOMANIACAL SOCIOPATH YOU HAVE REVEALED YOURSELF TO BE ABSOLUTE LIARS CHRONICLES.

    AND IT OF BECAUSE I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR MY COMPUTER SERVICE COMPANY AND HAVE A LOT OF COMPUTERS UNDER MY CONTROL AND SUPERVISION. I HAVE ONLY RECENTLY PASSED ON SOME OF OUR COMPUTERS FROM IE TO FIREFOX AS A TEST AND I AM DEPRIVED OF WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN THE COMPUTERS THAT WERE USING FIREFOX AS A TEST STUDY.

    AND WHILE THE TRUTH BEING WHAT IT IS, YOU ARE CAREFUL NOT TO MESS WITH MY BROWSER, AS IT IS WELL CONFIGURED TO NOT UPDATE, WHICH, IN YOUR HONOR, YOU GAVE HIM A LARGE DOCK, BUT YOU GRIMLY UPDATED SIX COMPUTERS THAT WERE PART OF OUR TEST STUDY
    WHO HAD THE SAME CONFIGURATION OF BROWSER REQUEST NOT TO BE UPDATED BUT THAT YOU UPDATED HOWEVER. THESE COMPUTERS WERE PART OF A STUDY OF PRODUCTIVITY WHICH, BY UPDATING IT SET ALL THE SMALL EXPERIENCE OF OUR BACK A LITTLE BIT.

    SO, WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH YOU? I HAVE TO REALLY THINK LONG AND SERIOUSLY ON HOW TO RESPOND TO AN ORGANIZATION THAT HAS SHOWN NOTHING BUT THE WORST KIND OF APATHY, PRACTICES DISHONEST COMMERCIAL I'VE SEEN SINCE BEING IN THE COMPUTER SECTOR.

    Automatic updates can sometimes damage the files in the profile, and I always read several web for a complaint indicating that it has not changed. This is one of the reasons why I don't like the automatic updates.

    Hey Hey Hey Doc K whadu say?

    I solved my problem;

    the problem was owner and permission on my programs, all users, the program data and my programs (86).

    As I type this i / m re - run SFC/verify only and a big pile of sucessfully some updates installed.

    What have I done? I took possession of the special directories above from "TrustedInstaller".

    Even when owned by TrustedInstaller, it does not have permissions. Some places I found rejection specific to the owner of the network.

    -What happened? Do you have a trusted Installer get stuck Mid-install?

    I took possession of SYSTEM, and made sure the CREATOR had every right, as in the SYSTEM and

    USER, AUTHENTICATED USER. I was perhaps too broad.

    I took possession, and then all of the repressed, updates windows are presented themselves to install,.

    and I expect /VERIFYNOW SFC before as I mark this as running.

    I'm fairly certain VS2008 and VS2010 now repair and install.

    Hmmm... always to see funny error message in SFC...

    We need a tool to give an overview of a directory tree ownership and permissions.

  • Why not update placed pictures not updated?

    We work in a busy environment pre - meadows where we update the content in indesign documents.

    We found in indesign CS4 after positioned update content, as the Indesign file is not updating (although the link info indicates the correct modification date and time). At the moment the only way to overcome this problem is to delete the file updated, then re place it again! (then it seems OK).

    Example:

    We have several brands of paint implemented in Illustrator (CS4). They have elements of base on the bottom layer (IE; Logos, texts and references) that are in the same position on each label. Then we have a stack of other layers for the change of the variety elemants (IE; Red layer, blue, green layer etc) - that have code numbers and codes to bars on them.

    Step 1: Back up illustrator with red layer doc lit.

    Step 2: Place the illustrator in Indesign doc - then export to PDF.

    Step 3: Check the exported PDF in Acrobat = Yes, it seems!

    Step 4: Open the doc of Illustrator (the same in step 1) turn off the Red layer and turn on the blue layer.

    Step 5: Update the image to the rhythm of the Idesign document (Yes, it's the same indesign doc, we recorded in step 2)

    Step 6: The link information area contains a time of change update - new export updated the PDF file.

    Step 7: Check the PDF in Acrobat = it looks the same as in step 3. (ie; the layer red not blue!)

    Now I have to redo a series of 20 tags at a time 1 becauce all PDFs that I exported all the same air!

    Help us, please?

    Just update the object layer options in InDesign. All of this back and forth to Illy is a waste of time.

  • Results not updated for each row in BIpublisher

    Hi all I have a Bi publisher report that updates the results of the first line and in the second row to update the results is to choose the values of the first column itself and using the same values for all other lines.

    Here is my report format

    Months saving altogether, for 30,60,90,120
    Jan
    Feb
    Mar

    Total are registered by each month and days shows after 30,60,90,120 how much is still in operation. For example should give an idea of exactly what is happening

    For example:

    Total 30 days 60 days 90 days 150days 210days 180days 120days
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Jan saves 330 287 274 270 263 262 259 257

    Feb saves 298 255 242 238 231 230 227 225

    Mar saves 291 248 235 231 224 223 220 218


    So what happens is lets say for example there is a total of 330 enrolled in January and after 30days 287 are still active and after 60 days 274 are still in business after 90 270... etc.
    Get active January values correctly.

    But in the future when I see the values for February that the total for February is 298 and after 30 days, that do not operate gives me good.

    Is subtracting the same amount as jan. looking at the figures it is subtracting
    -43,-13,-4,-7,-1,-3,-2 for Jan who cancel after consecutive days
    It is subtracting the same amount for Feb also but my real cancelled for February is different we 45,12,8,9,2,2.
    It does the same thing for every month.
    There should be a change in the code. Here is the XSL code used in

    <? xdoxslt:set_variable($_XDOCTX,_'v_SavesCanceled',_SAVES_CANCELED_COUNT)? >

    <? xdoxslt:set_variable ($_XDOCTX, 'v_RtSaves', xdoxslt:get_variable($_XDOCTX,_'v_RtSaves') - xdoxslt:get_variable($_XDOCTX,_'v_SavesCanceled'))? >

    <? xdoxslt:get_variable($_XDOCTX,_'v_RtSaves')? >

    Effectively cancels it should be updated for each line but his picking cancels it even for each month.
    Hope it is clear let me know if you need any additional information
    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you

    Can you send me the xml and RTF to [email protected]? I can take a look and try to help.

  • Ring type constant def not updated for LabVIEW 2010 SP1
