I have firefox 15, and should upgrade to 25 (?), have downloaded it, but can't drag the icon over to applications because I get the message that I don't have the rights for this product...

Chosen solution

If there are problems with updating or with the permissions then best is to download the full version and trash the currently installed version to do a clean install of the new version.

Download a new copy of the Firefox application and save the disk image file to the desktop

Your personal data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox profile folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data when you uninstall and (re)install Firefox.
