You can open the setup executable using the 7-zip program.

The ini files say 82.0.1.

i.e.

Code: Select all
7z x "Firefox Setup 82.0.1.exe"
findstr /p /s "82" *

core\application.ini:Version=82.0.1
core\platform.ini:Milestone=82.0.1

the installed version is actually 82.0

How are you determining that?

I'm thinking that about:support should give you the full version number?
Or if you right-click the file, firefox.exe, & check it's Properties, it too should show in there the full version number.

If you think it is "82.0" because of the update prompt, you might just have a "stuck" update.
In that case, try renaming the /updates/0/ directory itself (to something like /updates_dontbugme/0/
Fire 750, bring back 250.

Yes, it reports 82.0. There is no update prompt if you use the full installation.

When I download it in Private mode, I get the correct file. The filename is still the same, but the content is different and contains the right 82.0.1 version.

it's all a moot point now since Mozilla decided to release an 82.0.2 version a day after 82.0.1 was released
