How many times do I have to download and install Firefox 34.0 Beta 7? Software update asks me to do this (and I do) at least once a day. Yes, I have restarted.

Posted

Using MacBook Pro, 15", early 2008, 2.4G Intel core 2 duo, 4G ram. Software update asks to update Firefox 34.0 beta7 every day. If I update, it just asks me to do it again. It has done this through the last several Beta updates. It's a bit disconcerting, since the updates are supposedly for security and stability. Let me put the question in another way: how many times do I have to ignore the update request before it quits asking? This is all causing me to regret making Firefox my default browser, especially since Safari has been improved so much.

Beta programs are updated sometimes several times a week.

Even so there is only a average of nine Beta test builds for each version in six weeks, so not that often.

Sound like you the update is not installing perhaps due to read/write permission issues.

Try downloading the 34.0b7 dmg from https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/beta/all/
