Running Firefox 188.8.131.5215 on Windows XP SP3, I was prompted to update to Firefox 18, ran the update, requested restart, got no restart and cannot run Firefox
The install was apparently successful, I got a restart prompt and said OK. Firefox 17 shut down, but there was no restart. Attempts to launch Firefox from icons or the Start menu get no reaction.
The Firefox.exe in Program Files is version 184.108.40.20615. It will not execute.
Anti-virus Avast (but I've done plenty of Firefox updates before with this installed, and no conflict).

hello afew, does it work when you download the full setup file from getfirefox.com again & install it on top of your current installation?
Firefox 18 now installed, thanks. But it's a French version (since I'm in France) and I prefer working with an EN one.
Any way I can switch for the EN version?
on this site you can pick a download of the localization you'd like: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ (again, just install it on top of your current version & it will replace it)
Perfect, thanks a lot, madperson!
