#19411 closed defect (fixed)

Update icon shows up even if partial updates are failing

While investigating #19410 I realized that the green icon on the hambuger menu is showing up as well if the partial update is failing. I confirmed that clicking on it restarts the browser but still there is no update (obviously) to 6.0.1. This is pretty confusing. This was tested on OS X.

Here is a fix:

Assuming this works for us, we should file a bug against Firefox as well (since it very likely has the same bug).

Looks good to me. I applied this to tor-browser-45.2.0esr-6.5-1 and tor-browser-45.2.0esr-6.0-1 (it looked simple enough): 8d80221e8cfdc85e1b6c7692542181621b2eb4f1 and 15792fd075f46d2150a566bd546ec41b427f3588.

mcs/brade: Could you file a ticket in Mozilla's bug tracker and attach your patch there? This is the only thing left to be done before closing this ticket.
