On Windows

Using your computer manufacturer's system update tool

Some computer manufacturers require that you use their system update tool to apply any updates. Just search for this tool in the Windows menu, and try to apply all available updates.

Manually downloading and installing a driver from your graphics card manufacturer

Here are the links to get the latest drivers, depending on your graphics card manufacturer: Intel, AMD/ATI, NVIDIA.

On Mac

On Mac OSX, Firefox currently only checks the OS version. Just apply the latest system update.

XXX!!! I don't have a Mac, I don't know how to do that or if that is worth mentioning !!!XXX

On Linux

On Linux, Firefox does not yet check driver versions. However, it may still be a good idea to get a driver update. If your distribution's standard update process doesn't give you the latest drivers, you may need to look for other package repositories for your distribution.
