Go to one of the 'old' units an try to do a manual update.


If that should fail, Download Firefox For All languages And Systems {web link}

Make sure the update/installer are not blocked.

If the user never starts Firefox, it won't be updated. Could that be the issue?

Firefox needs to be running to do the update within itself. After, it will restart itself.
