I have tried and tried to update the latest version of Firefox but can't get it to work; Gmail keeps telling me to update and so does pinterest. I am too scared to upload recommended packages too because there's a warning about software packages not be able to be authenticated and a malicious individual could take control of my computer.

Not sure what to do Rosy

You may want to ask for support on how to go about updating packages and such on https://askubuntu.com/ or https://ubuntuforums.org/

Just what old version of Ubuntu or flavor of Ubuntu are you using as Firefox 15.0.1 came out September 6, 2012 from Mozilla.

sudo apt-get install firefox

however you may want to update your packages first as they are likely outdated also.

Note starting as of Firefox 46.0 and later it requires GTK 3.4 (three.four) or preferably more newer in order for Firefox to run. As a result you need GTK3 themes as GTK2 themes will not Theme Firefox 46.0 and later and Firefox will look unthemed with scrollbar arrows missing.
