Links to outdated articles

  1. This article contains links to 2 articles that are no longer maintained:

    1. Installing Firefox
    2. Updates reported when running newest version

    I’m not sure if that’s how it should be though, as those articles seem to contain valuable info and get linked to from several other articles as well. How to cope with this?

    Indeed. Maybe we have to "call back" these two articles again, i think it is the best solution, with small changes in both articles it is not a bad idea, is it ?

    thanks

  3. I thought this was an archived article anyway.

    Update Oops, I was thinking about the other article which is archived.

  4. I made a revision to replace or remove the links to archived articles. I did an advanced search on "update failed" and there are still questions about this error so I don't think that this article should be archived.

    Installing Firefox isn't needed since we can just link to the related Windows, Mac and Linux "how to install Firefox " articles.

    I started a thread in the discussion forum for the Updates reported when running newest version article:

    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Updates%20reported%20when%20running%20newest%20version/discuss/6571 Why was this article archived?

    (Does the issue no longer exist? Does it affect too few users to justify keeping it?)

    Correct. Done.

  7. I noticed this article still tells Windows users to click on the Firefox button. I made another revision to update the check for updates steps and self-approved RFL.

    Oops, it took two tries to get it right.
