Why do I continually get a notification to update Firefox, even though I have but moments before updated?
For the last few weeks, at the least, I have been getting a notification to update Firefox upon initial launch. I update, shut down Firefox, and restart. Right away I am again given the update notification.

I would guess because you are around 5 updates behind according to your version # of 57,0,4 and current version is 59.0.2 Also it seems that the updates may not be taking. Please make backups :
Then do a install over top with a full version installer from here :
Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.
If the above does not work,
Let’s do a full clean re-install;
Save the file. Then Close Firefox.
Using your file browser, open the Programs Folder on your computer.
Windows: C:\Program Files C:\Program Files (x86)
Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac
Linux: Check your user manual. If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it. See Install Firefox on Linux; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-linux
If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder Firefox in your home directory. http://www.mozilla.org/firefox#desktop ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Look for, and remove any Mozilla or Firefox program folders. Do not remove the Mozilla Thunderbird folder if there is one.
Do Not remove the profiles folder.
After rebooting the computer, run a registry scanner if you have one. Then run the installer. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ If there is a problem, start your Computer in safe mode and try again.
