For the past several versions (pretty much since FP had an auto updater), I have always selected the option to be notified of new updates. However, I never get notified. Usually when I install MS updates, I just check manually for updates and find there are new versions.
This happens on several systems XP SP3, Win 7Pro x64, various win server versions, with various versions of IE.
Please explain what this option is meant to do, how it does it and at what frequency is it supposed to check for updates. Are there any known issues with this or applications known to interfere with the notifier?
