I am running Firefox 33.1 & I am getting a message advising "Update failed."

When I attempt to download the latest version, it hangs (for as long as 8 to 10+ hours) and does nothing.

Following a system failure, I was able to recover my Favorites (from a back up that I had (prior to the system crash.))

Do you still have crashes that involve this file in the crashing thread?

Were you able to download the full Firefox installer and update to the current release?

Some added toolbar and anti-virus add-ons are known to cause Firefox issues. Disable All of them.


Download Firefox Full Installer For All languages And Systems {web link} Save the file. Then;

Using your file browser, open the Programs folder on your computer.

Windows: C:\Program Files C:\Program Files (x86) Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. Linux: Check your user manual.

Look for, and rename any Mozilla and Firefox folders by adding .old to them.

Now run the full installer. If all goes well, remove the OLD folders when you are done.

You appear to have some crashes a while back with lavasofttcpservice.dll involved.
