From about:mozilla, a purposed idea to the way add-ons updates will be handled with the future Firefox 5.
Jennifer Boriss has an idea for Firefox 5 that will give users some flexibility. She writes: “The user begins with completely automatic updates on by default. By switching to manual updates in the advanced menu, the user can go back to installing updates themselves. Each add-on shows, in its detailed pane, whether it receives updates automatically or manually.” Feel free to leave a comment or thought for her.
