@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.

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.
