To which version do you want to update?

To the latest Firefox 3.6.11 version?

Did you try via Help > Check for Updates?

If that doesn't work then do this:

  • Download a new copy of the Firefox program: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all.html
  • Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re)install.
  • Install the new version that you have downloaded.

Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data.
