    It appears that Mozilla has removed the capability to manually check/scan for installed Firefox add-on updates, despite allowing automatic add-on updates/installation.

    I have never liked the automatic update/installation idea, as it might occur right in the middle of doing something important that you don't want to be interrupted.

    Does anyone reading this message know of a way to conveniently scan for installed add-on updates without installing them?

    Still there for me. Arch Linux. I can also right click an extension and choose Find Updates.
