If anyone has idea, please do not hesitate to reply

Apparently it won't let you hide certain app updates but will allow for others. I right click on software update for "OS X v10.8.2 Supplemental Update 1.0" and it gives me the option to hide. When I right click on "FreeMemory"'s update I don't get that option. For those of you that right-clicking is not working for perhaps Apple just doesn't allow it for that particular application for whatever reason.

then it will always bother until Apple sees it as an issue to be fixed
Does anyone know how we could escalade this kind of bugs to Apple?

I experienced the same problem—but I had two updates waiting, one of which I wanted to ignore, and the other of which I wanted to install. While I had two updates waiting, no amount of right clicking would do anything. After I installed the one update I wanted, I quit the App Store, restarted it, changed to "featured" and then back to "updates." All of a sudden, no problem getting the "hide update" on a right click, even without have the update display its full description.

@vexas: You suspect somebody to have an ilegal OS (but the right click seems to work only on certain software, also official and free by apple, I have bought my systems and have the same issue = it just work with core apple software, no third party, that's the reason, google tells), but you have unexplained angry birds, which is a classic symptom for a hacked iOS app (I have that too, but I know where it cames from).
Well, there is an interesting thread ( http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57515472-263/how-to-apply-os-x-software-upd ates-from-the-command-line/) about command line & update, but even that does not help with third party apps. grrr. Dont like this app-store.

PD: not working not only with third party, but also some stuff by apple. It works mostly with apple system software.

I'm having this proble for the first time. I got a used Mac pro, clean installed Mountain Lion on a brand new hard drive 2 days ago. Today an update for CodeBox showed up, an app I don't have and have never downloaded. Right clicking does nothing.
In my obsessive compulsiveness I figured I'd just download it and then delete it just to get it out of the list. When I click update it brings up the authorization window, so this must be a paid app. The truly bizarre part is that the email that is in the pop up window ISN'T MINE. Maybe the App Store is freaking out, I don't know. Either that, or like someone who loses a limb and still feels the phantom body part, my used Mac Pro is remembering updates for programs on a hard drive it no longer has.

Unfortunately, I can't get this to work either. I'm running Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on my iMac. The only time I can right click and see "Hide Update" is on the updates I already downloaded. It won't work for the ones I want to ignore so I'm destined to have those continually showing up in my list and popping up in the corner of my iMac.

Try right-clicking on the actual 'Update' button next to the update you want to ignore. That should do the trick.

If only it could be that simple. ; ) Sorry, but no luck. I'm using Mountain Lion 10.8.2 btw. Thanks for trying.

I've seen the same problem of phantom apple id's on the iphone after a restore when the apps are reloading.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 12, 2013 8:26 AM (in response to pkarsai)
yep, same issue, can't ignore updates. 10.8.2 If the little reminder window didn't pop up every minute or two it wouldn't be a problem, but I'm constantly swiping it away. pretty anoying.

You can turn off notifications for a day at a time at least...
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 18, 2013 12:47 PM (in response to Danr95)
This only works for Apple software updates.
It does not work for third-party app updates.
Is there any way to ignore updates to specific non-Apple apps?
