Hi, I have a Mac, running Yosemite version 10.10.4. I have been getting an pop up message on Firefox stating that my automatic update has failed. Today, I had to manually update to Firefox 39.0. I am also running Avast Anti-Virus for Mac.

Why are the automatic updates not working, and what can I do to correct this? Thanks.

Some anti-virus think the stubs used to update Firefox are mal-ware.
