Ableton Live 10 online authorization fails

Personal reminder:
Today, Live 10 Suite upgrade authorization failed for me when using the online authorization. What was going on?

In January, I tested the Live 10 Beta. In Chrome, the authorization link tried to access the Live 10 Beta binary which was no longer available on my system. Unfortunately, the corresponding Chrome popup only showed up for a split second, providing no hint that this caused the error. Switched to Firefox temporarily (sorry folks) and on authorization attempt, it complained about the missing binary. Selected the proper Live 10 binary and tadaa, it worked.

Side symptom of the workaround-ish offline authorization: The packs browser does not show “available packs” for download, i.e. you can not download packs from the brower. After the online authorization, everthing is working as expected.

Happy producing,
Mark
