This morning the dialog box from Help / About Nightly gets stuck on "Checking for updates...". In the past it has given up quickly, but today is has been "checking" for ten minutes.

I think I have the same issue as you have. For me it's most noticable on YouTube while watching a video. It just becomes black for a moment and then appear as normal again.

There's a bug with a proposed work-around for bug 1517718 that would allow those of us with the bug to update to a newer nightly automatically.

I keep getting the Notice of New Update available, but nothing is downloaded. Manual check also downloads nothing.

Thanks for bugs noted above - watching them... somehow I suspect being as the week-end is upon us... could be no updates for a day or two ?

This evening it was stuck for me.

As a test, I downloaded the Nightly from Mozilla's web site (Nightly full installers) and installed over my \Firefox Nightly\ executables. There was a partial update that installed after I got Nightly back up and running.

I don't know if what I did installed the fix, but so far it looks good.

I manually installed the current ZIP version of Nightly. I'm not getting the constant update spinner. ZIP can be found here: Index Browser | Taskcluster

I am confused. I assume that you did as you said and manually installed the 'latest update' why would you expect the update spinner to even find a, as of yet, non existent 'new update'?
