It's unbelievable that a program like this have NEVER had a smooth update EVER. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS problems. Only tried to update now because I verified that my addons, that I will NOT go without, actually haven't been disabled in this time.

Today's problem.

Tried to allow it to update to the latest version and it downloaded and restarted the browser. It restarted the exact same version of the browser I'm trying to update. Tried restarting, updating again and again, says "restart to update" but NEVER updates the browser.

Tried downloading the installer to update myself. Installer says it's up to date. Tried starting firefox from all my shortcuts, from the start menu, and directly from the programs folder and ALL start the non-updated browser.

So, if I have an up to date version of firefox on my computer where is the new super secret location it's installed to these days?????? It's not in the program files. If the browser updates then why is there still on old version running on my computer??????
