what app/program do I use to upgrade to 46.0.1 as it comes as a .part file for win8.1

Posted

I cannot connect to WaterFox on line. An alert was just sent to install 46.0.1 but it wouldn't install and they sent me to a website where I manually downloaded the file but it's a .part file and won't open. Do I have to install firefox just to install waterfox newest vers.? I'm using win 8.1 64bit... how do I open the .part file? thanks

ps what's the web address for WaterFox....I tried waterfox.org and other combo's but no good. thanks

A .part file is the name of a file being downloaded. Once the download is finished, the .part is removed.



. Whenever you get a message / popup that software / files need to be updated;

DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PROVIDED LINKS

While this may be a legitimate message, it could also be Malware or a Virus. Any time you want or need to check for upgrades, go to the website of the True Owner of the program in question. For example, to check out Firefox, go to https://www.mozilla.org {web link}

Waterfox -- not a Mozilla product -- can be found here: https://www.waterfoxproject.org/

Maybe bookmark that for quicker future access.
