See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Software_Update (Software Update not working properly)

After closing Firefox, Remove the files in the updates and updates\0 folder: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Mozilla Firefox\ C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\updates\

(Replacing <user> with your Vista user name.)


If that doesn't work, try downloading the Firefox installer from http://www.getfirefox.com and running it, after exiting Firefox. Your settings won't be lost with this upgrade install.
