Lynn, thanks.  Are you using 3.5 or 3.6? I found a colleague who is not in a meeting and has the toolbar. She was able to update in Firefox 3.5 but I still can't in 3.6.

That's odd. I created our institution's new version yesterday around the same time locally and it showed up quite promptly in Firefox as an available update.

Very strange,

Lynn

I guess this is more a Firefox question than a LibX question, but LibX is the issue so here goes.

About 5 PM yesterday I created a new version of our edition and made it live.  As of a few minutes ago it still doesn't come up when I do Find Updates in my 3.6 Addons menu. IE found the new IE version just fine.

Has anyone else had this experience? Any thoughts on why Firefox 3.6 is taking so long?

Maintainers need to create & test a new revision of their editions and
push it if they wish for their LibX edition to support 3.6. This is
best done before Mozilla turns on the "There's a new version of
Firefox" flag which will signal to end user they can/should update.

Since so far we've had very little compatibility issues with the 3.0
and 3.5 transition, I'll look into adding an "auto" update option
which, when checked, will automatically rebuild your live revision on
a major version update. But 3.6 took us a bit by surprise (Mozilla had
said Q1/2010 which usually means March...)
