Sure, prevent it to be automatically updated if you want, but let me manually update it via the context menu!

When you right click on one script? When you wrench-drop-down>check for updates? Both? Something else?

When you right click on one script?

This one. At least.
I assume users that modify specific scripts don't want their edits to be overwritten when doing batch updates.

Only individually via the script context menu.

I've looked into this a bit now. Unfortunately, whether you use the wrench to 'Check for Updates' to everything, or the context menu, it's the Add-ons Manager issuing the exact same call, so we can't tell them apart. It passes in the update listener, and that object seems to be defined in a private scope.

So "just via the context menu" might be hard. Re-implementing those internal firefox bits seems fragile, so probably not a feasible path.

If it's a Firefox limitation then it might be worth opening a issue on their bugzilla?

Can't you just add another option to the context menu that says "force update" for locally modified scripts?

Of course. That seems like a great idea.

Why was this closed? It's really something I need to quickly update my script from git.

@Darker: edit file locally (i.e. add comment), then "Forced Find Updates" is available in script's context menu

Erm this is gone again with GM4, right? At least I can never see scripts in the addons manager and the script menu always just says enabled edit and uninstall.

Thank you @Eselce .
I wasn't sure if it automatically updates in the background without notice so I had different search terms.
