Firefox auto update never finds newer versions. Why?

Hi, I've been having an issue for quite some versions now (two at least): autoupdate never finds newer versions. When I first noticed this issue, I also noticed auto updates were disables in the prefs. Re-activating them would bring them back off after I checked for updates (About Firefox).

So i went on and: - restarted with add-ons disables - refreshed Firefox - trashed active-update.xml and updates.xml

What's wrong?

Thanks everyone. At last autoupdater is working again.

FredMcD, this is Mac OSX and not Windows as there are no installers for Mac and Linux.

Sometimes Mac OSX users do not get the update properly so downloading and setting up new version may be needed.
