Cannot update extensions even in developer mode

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Extensions won’t update, even in developer mode
  2. Go to Extensions> turn on developer mode> Click Update
  3. The “Updating” text shows, but after an hour or so, nothing it still sits there. Have tried multiple times.

Expected result:
The browser should update extensions. The “Updating” text should look like it’s doing something.

On my end the Update button on the extensions page seems to be working as expected. Not that I don’t believe you, but can you confirm that the extensions you’re attempting to update didn’t actually update after the button was clicked?

metamask updated but it’s still a piece of shite

I’ll have someone on the team take a look at the behavior either way — maybe we can make it more clear that the button was clicked/extensions were updated.
