Re: Add on updates

I have not seen this but then the last update I saw was the mozilla enhancements one and it was only there a couple of minutes. Is this something odd with the add ons web site or with the string that is held in nvda being overwritten by something else?

Thank you Ron. This is the first time this has happened on an ongoing
basis so I wondered if I had done something wrong. My Computer had just
been turned on for the day so the notification had been there for
several hours.

Hi Ian,

I have also seen this. However, I think it's simply a function of when the updates are recognized and a time out error. That is to say, if I leave the computer on and it is more than several minutes and I try activating the update add on button, I get the error. If I get the alert and am near the computer and right away, I activate the update add on button, I don't get the error.

Hi. I am using the NVDA latest Beta and, it is working well. When I am notified that there are Add on updates when first starting NVDA, the update shows an error message when I attempt the update from the notification. When I go to the update Add on from the NVDA menu, it works as usual----well and efficiently.

Has anyone else had the issue with the Add on update notification?
