Description

In the past few days, HTTPS-E 4.0dev17 gets updated every day or so. In the Add-on preference window it appears in the "Updated Add-ons tab" every day as if it has been updated, although I have been using 4.0dev17 since the end of May.

If I check manually for Add-on updates, nothing happens though.
All other add-ons work normally.

Weird. I don't see this happening.

Unfortunately, I still see this happening.

After restarting Aurora, HTTPS-E 5.0dev0 appears in the about:addons tab as recently updated add-on (although it not has been updated). This happens every two days or so.

I'm not sure whether this happens only after a warm restart (e.g. applying updates of other add-ons and/or updating Aurora), or also after a cold start-up of Aurora.

See the attached screenshots for more information.
