is it true that if we are using the new build, that Firefox's automated notification will not tell us when the "real" new TMP is available? That would mean we would have to check in on your site to see when the new TMP is officially released.
As with any ext., if you have Fx set to check for updates and notify you before installing, it should find the official release on AMO
and tell you it's available. It will not notify you about updates to the dev. version. For that you'll have to check the designated thread in my signature. But if you have no problems using it now, you don't need an update. Sit back and wait for Fx to tell you it found a new official version.
Are you sure, makondo? I have the latest development version of TMP installed, tab_mix_plus-0.3.7.4pre.090516.xpi. When I click the Find Updates button in the Extensions Manager, all my other extensions are marked "No updates were found.", but Tab Mix Plus is labeled "An error occurred while trying to find updates for Tab Mix Plus." Do you get something different?
That said, it's been a long time since I relied on AMO to get timely updates to TMP. This forum is the only place I find worth checking. BTW, I have not encountered any problems with 0.3.7.4pre.090516 since I updated to it at the beginning of July.
