I have Firefox 3.6.2 on my Mac. There are newer ones - 4 & 5. How come when I search for updates, I get the message that there are none?

I installed the latest version of 1Password 3.6.5 but its extension is incompatible with Firefox 3.6.2. It wants Firefox 4 or 5. The 1Password extension does work, however, on my Safari 5.1 browser. I want 1Password on both browsers but Firefox is preventing this due to inability to automatically update to Firefox 4 or 5. That option is checked in the Firefox preferences.

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

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