Firefox update doesn't update

Posted

Update won't update! I keep getting a message that Firefox wants to update. I tell it to and everything seems fine. Firefox reboots. Moments later, I get another popup saying Firefox needs to do an update (the same one!). Repeat... repeat... repeat. What is wrong?
