I cannot update Mozilla Firefox (from v.60 to the current) with method #1: from PortableApps launcher -> Apps -> Check for updates.
I cannot either update with method #2: download the
paf.exe installer, for a local installation from PortableApps launcher -> Apps -> Install a new app (paf.exe), or extracting as mentioned here.
(I guess this issue is related with the above).
Whenever I try this download, it gets stuck at
Waiting for download3.portableapps.com...:
I can update FF with method #3: from within FF, with Three bars -> Help -> About Firefox -> Restart to update Firefox, so this would be a workaround.
I can update other PortableApps (e.g., KiTTY) with any of methods 1/2.
I cannot update Mozilla Thunderbird with method 1, but I could use method 2.
What could the problem be?
As a workaround (even if not my final target), how can I get an URL for the
paf.exe that will work with
wget for a direct download?
This topic is related, but with the following differences:
I have the problem with either PortableApps Platforms 15.0.2 and 16.0 Beta 2. For these releases the issue is presumably fixed.
I checked other apps that presumably had problems with Platform 14.4.3: Firefox, 4stAttack, AIMP, and others as well. The only one that I cannot update/install (so far) is Mozilla FF.
