Why dosen't my firefox update to the latest version?

Posted

I asked this yesterday thinking I would get an answer via email but I guess it doesn't work that way so I'll try again now and stay on this site awhile hoping to get an answer. I have Firefox set up to automatically update but it doesn't. Every time I start the computer, before too long, there is a popup box that tells me to update to version 45.0.2 When I click on "update and install, it says,"connecting to update server." but it never connects no matter how much time I give it. Suggestions please.
