How to reproduce

  1. Go to
  2. Click on "Adblock Plus for Firefox"

Observed behaviour

Firefox warns the user:

Firefox has prevented this site from installing an unverified add-on.

Expected behaviour

The extension should be successfully installed.

Note: you can force this behavior by following "older builds" next to "Adblock Plus for Firefox" and clicking on the latest file (e.g Adblock Plus for Firefox ) manually.


This error happens due to 00latest.xpi not being updated by createNightlies --download.
