I've been using Firefox on this computer for some time, presently v. 3.6.8. I have downladed 3.6.10, but when I try to drag it to the applications folder, it says I do not have permissions to copy some items.

  • Download a new copy of the Firefox program:
  • Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean reinstall.
  • Install the new version that you have downloaded.
