FF 65.0.2-candidates/build1 has been sitting in /pub/firefox/candidates/ since February 28th. When I check for updates on FF 65.0.1 it says it is up to date.

Anyone know what is going on?

you are welcome.

#forgot: mozilla offers 65.0.2 as regular but for osx it is not required. But you can install it if you feel more comfortable. This happend not the first time.

Just noticed that there are 65.0.2 builds for OSX in all languages at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/

For some reason 65.0.1 says it is up to date?

Sometimes fixes are only needed for one OS but not the others. But when they run the build script, I believe it makes a new build for all supported platforms, but the new build is not pushed to the update system because there were no changes. Or, they have decided to roll the update out slowly for one reason or another. Or what Brummelchen said already. :D

Here's the "what's new" for 65.0.2:
Fixed an issue with geolocation services affecting Windows users

No fix for OSX, no release for OSX.

It (65.0.2 release) is here (fix not)

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/

for OSX; however, when I opened the .1 and .2 packages all files look the same but have different dates. Seems a little odd to not increment the OSX version so they all match across platforms. On the other hand it is Mozilla.

If you make people run an update just so the version numbers match but nothing was actually in the update, which do you think makes them more upset, that you interrupted their work flow for no reason whatsoever, or that their version numbers don't match a platform that they probably do not give two poops about?

there was no code change for osx so they compiled the same code ;)

(It's not really uncommon for automated builds to do that. DownThemAll [remember that ;-)] does that to this day. A "new" build, yet the code has not been touched in ages.

Some might argue that having "correct" numbers is a requirement, Mozilla Maintenance Service never updates itself ;-).)
