I have a Max OS X. I have tried over and over to download the latest version of Firefox without success. When I open Firefox it props me to download the lastest version. Why is this not downloading? nruddell@primus.ca

If you have problems with updating or with the permissions then easiest is to download the full version and trash the currently installed version to do a clean install of the new version.

Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the DMG file to the desktop

  • Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re-)install
  • Install the new version that you have downloaded
