i found a problem firefox based browser that fail to update browser in background for example user open tor browser and when opened, automatically update or when users browse the web in tor browser update automatically and when restart browser the new build boot up.
i also check for Automatically install updates (recommended) in Tor Browser Updates.

some one report the bug to Mozilla but they do not any thing(not for now), so for users anonymity and privacy and ... please add a function to tor browser update in background.

At least in Win10 x64 Firfox background updater works automatically, but the first time it is installed it has to be granted full permissions. As for Tor Browser specifically, I was under the impression that it auto-downloads and notifies of an update (still asks permission though).

I'm having trouble understanding the enhancement request. As ner0 explains, users are already notified of updates to Tor Browser and asked to restart the browser to install. How is your enhancement request different from the existing functionality?
