I noticed my Bitwarden was out of date, so I enabled automatic updating of extensions--but its outdated version is unchanged. How I can I update it (without uninstalling/reinstalling)? And is there an easy way to see what the latest update is for a given extension before taking any action?

On the Add-ons page, above the Extensions list on the right, there's a "gear" button. That menu has a "Check for Updates" item. Does it work for Bitwarden?

Thanks, jscher.

My Check for Updates button doesn't really "check" for updates--it updates all my extensions. It's certainly better than nothing, but is it not possible for me to selectively update the extensions?

Do you have "Update Add-ons Automatically" enabled in the gear wheel menu?
