If your Firefox does not update itself, you can check for updates by clicking Help, then "Check for updates".

I have not yet updated my own 3.5.5 version. The update module is failing to connect to the Mozilla server, but I guess that is temporary.

I downloaded this the other day & experienced problems almost immediately , uninstalling it sorted it out . Yes , my security is up to date and yes I have a good system . This was Cnet possibly tempting me at the right time and I should know better at my age .
Anyone wants to try Firefox out go ahead & the very best of luck .

Rather Firefox... than IE! IE is SUPER slow... in my corner of the woods :)) Even Google Chrome is better than IE. Just a pity some banks in our corner of the world is stuck with Noah's Ark and IE..
