Bundled extensions don't get updated with Android Tor Browser updates (they stay stuck at the first installed version)
Bundled extensions (e.g. NoScript) do not get updated to the version shipped with the current Tor Browser version during automatic browser updates.
Noticed while trying to troubleshoot an issue on a Samsung S21 device where the Tor Browser have been installed for months, and realizing that NoScript was stuck at version 11.2.11 while TB version is 11.5 (which ships with NoScript 11.4.6).
Steps to reproduce:
- Install an older Tor Browser on Android and check NoScript version number
- Update to current Tor Browser (not uninstalling and reinstalling)
- Check again NoScript version number
What is the current bug behavior?
NoScript version is still the one originally installed.
What is the expected behavior?
NoScript should be updated to the version shipping with latest Tor Browser
