Only get a Connection Error trying to Dnload this uBlock Origin XPI Update / ESET Security - MBAM Disabled = Same........
Auto-update "should" occur eventually but I was trying a manual route for Install Addon from a File.

you wont be able to install this build on regular firefox 63 or 64, only with v65 (current nightly) or any developer release.

next - you are not able to download that file with context menu, github dont allow it.

what you can do is to install this extension:
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/crxviewer/

reload github page -> https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/releases/tag/1.17.4

(ctrl) right click on file and chose "view linked extension source", then click upper right "Download"

rename zip to xpi

I'm reading what you wrote & thinking, what?!

But now its making more sense.
So the (two) URLs are different, & then it looks like the latter is actually a redirect to the former, but seemingly a referrer is required.
And then to top it off the gorhill versions do not include the /META-INF/ stuff, so a "regular" FF won't accept the .xpi anyhow.
(I forgot about all that nonsense FF goes through to "secure" you from its extensions. Blocked.)


Anyhow, 1.17.4 is on AMO, uBlock Origin, & is signed (there) & so should install (or you could download if you want) :-).

From the time I posted til I read this he must have updated his main page - All I kept seeing was 1.17.2.
Thanks for the heads-up on the updated link.
Now 1.17.4 the easy way.
