Fehler beim Laden der Erweiterung aus: D:\iron-updater\iron-updater
Cannot load extension with file or directory name _metadata. Filenames starting with "_" are reserved for use by the system.

But the extension is shown as installed.

The same happens using your "WebRTC Block Extension".


Please install it from the Webstore or the CRX

The updater only supports checking for updates at statup or every hour. Connecting on a regular basis is not something a privacy sensitive browser should do in my opinion.
I would like to request an additional option to check for updates only once a week or after a user defined number of days.
Thanks

Thank you so much for this long awaited feature! If it wasn't the fact that I loose all my installed extensions and browser settings every time I update, I'd be totally happy with using Iron. I reported that problem a few times without any response :(

Same here. Just updated from 57 to 58 and all Extensions, theme and settings are gone. Any Update on this?

Добрый день. Использую весию 56.0.2950.1 (64-bit) Portable, при обновлении (по инструкции, заменяю только папку Iron) на более свежую версию не сохраняются настройки моего браузера и открытые вкладки
Подскажите как обновить Portable версию с сохранением настроек ?

The updater doesn't seem to know about Iron 63. It thinks Iron 62 is up to date.


Installed Version: 62.0.3250.0
Latest Build: 62.0.3250.0

You're up to date!


I'm guessing that whatever it's checking hasn't been updated for Iron 63, which begs the question: What (URL?) does this extension check and what does it compare against?

Thanks so much for Iron and the updater extension!

The Iron Updater Extension (v1.0.0.0) says my installed version of Iron is out of date (62.0.3202.94), but when I click on "About Iron" (chrome://settings/help), it shows that I am using the latest version (63.0.3300.0). Which one is correct?

I went ahead and updated Iron again, and I get the same problem: Updater Extension says I'm out of date, and About Iron says I am current.

Thanks for any help!

Seems that you manually modified your user agent ;) Please keep this up to date too.

I may have solved this issue (on my machine, at least): I went into the Iron Config & Backup Tool and turned OFF the option to "Enable extended Privacy" in the Configuration tab. Then I ran the Iron Updater Extension again and now it shows that I do have the most recent version of Iron.

So, I think the Config Tool's "Extended Privacy" option may be preventing the Updater Extension from correctly reporting the current installed version. Just guessing.

( However, this raises another question: Why would the Extended Privacy option in the Config Tool prevent the Updater Extension from seeing the current installed version when "About Iron" already correctly identifies the installed version? It almost looks like the Updater Extension is *sending* the current installed version number [and other info?] to SRWare.net in order for SRWare.net to compare that number with it's latest version database. It would probably be better from a privacy standpoint if the Updater simply retrieved the latest version number from SRWare and then compared that number with the installed version number already accessed by "About Iron" inside the browser itself.

In other words, the Updater Extension should only *pull* info from an external site, not *send* info to it. Just a thought. )
