Update link showing Cyberfox x86 download page in Cyberfox x64 Updated
A small macro that depending on if x86 or x64bit build sets the link for the update page you see, this macro has once again broke due to changes to the Mozilla build system and currently with Cyberfox 48.0 when clicking the “view update” or “update available at 8pecxstudios” buttons its showing the Cyberfox x86 download page.
We are very sorry about this and are going to impliment a more solid solution this time, in the mean time see below to resolve the issue.
Simply navigate to the correct page.
This is fixed in 48.0.2 however in 48.0.1 you will still get the issue when the update notification appears after 48.0.2 is released.
