New Article on Automatic Updates

May 18, 2009

After what seems like a million years, I have written a new tutorial on Automatic Firefox Extension Updates. The article covers what’s needed to get automatic updates working for self-hosted extensions (i.e. extensions served on a non-secure web server). Topics include update manifests, using the McCoy signing tool, and Apache configuration steps to make sure your files are served appropriately.

If you spot an error in the article, or have general suggestions for improvement, please leave your comments here. Constructive criticism and comments are always welcome!
