I kept getting new version is available while I was up to date. This could be due to this:

When I had Firefox in its standard location in C drive, I also installed another copy on my computer's E drive. After a while I uninstalled the E drive version and kept the C drive one.

After that I kept getting a new version is available, but could not be downloaded. I follow the links and find out I do have the latest version. When there is a new version out, in Settings - General - Check for updates I always get the message Firefox is up to date.

I uninstalled Firefox completely, but kept my profile directory contents. After re-installation, I copied contents of my old profile into the new installation default profile.

However, I still get the 'New version is available, but couldn't be downloaded'. The problem is still there.

Somewhere in the files in my profile directory there is still a trace of the E drive installation and the update checking looks at that (I guess ? ) Any suggestions would be appreciated.

One should never install Program Files other then in the C:\ drive locations. This is why you ended up with your problem loosing track what's installed. You can't just copy the old profile over as that was created with a different install. You should've use firefox help on how to do this.

And now you will have to go to all the location installed and remove Firefox install in order for Firefox to work again.

Thank you Dropa. That link was very helpful. I removed all installations (kept a copy of profile with passwords, bookmarks, etc. in a separate location.) Then installed a new copy in the default location of the program and copied necessary files per the link you sent. Solved the issue, I am not getting the new version pop up any more.
