@th I've never seen this before! what a terrible decision they made forcing this

@th I didn't have this since years. What causes this?

@retohaeberli @th I encounter this if I update Firefox with my system package manager while Firefox is running.

@myersjustinc @th Ah ok. Never had it when using the built-in update functionality.

Although it immediately recommends a restart after applying the update as well. Which I always do.

@th "You know those really irritating behaviors in Windows that people complain about so much it's a running joke with the general public? Let's add some of those."

@th Your OS of choice makes this possible/necessary for app updates. This does not happen on my Linux installs.

@th
To be fair It's better that than coming up with some complex hot reload scheme in software that's already way too complex

@th you should update when you are not working 😂

@th I have never experienced this while using Firefox. (I mostly use macOS though.)

@rasterweb @th I get this all the time on macOS and every time it happens it makes me want to quit using it!

@yeroc @th Really!? I have never seen it on macOS. Granted I am not running Ventura.

@rasterweb @th I'm not on Ventura yet either. For me this has been going on across multiple versions of macOS.

@yeroc @th I never get forced to update... I can see this in the About box, but otherwise it just runs the update the next time I relaunch it.
