There are several websites and online services that are becoming an issue or are unusable for me because I don't have the most current version of Firefox. But I've tried to update it and cannot. I go to the "Help" pull-down menu, and the "Check For Updates" option is grayed out and un-selectable. Please help!

If there are problems with updating or with the permissions then easiest 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 program and save the disk image (dmg) file to the desktop

  • Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re-)install
  • Install the new version that you have downloaded

Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data.
