Can't install latest Firefox. Says I don't have privileges or something like that
When I try to update I get a message that I don't have privileges. Also, Firefox has been crashing. I was at Version 4 today, but after I tried to update, I had Version 3.0.

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
- Firefox 6.0.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/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.
