trying to update from firefox 3.0.1 and will not let me put in applications, says I do not have authority. Think I have malware/spying and an unauthorized user on my system. I use a MAC. Any help would be appreciated
installed firefox 7, the latest update. When I go to transfer to applications, error saying I do not have the authorization. I am the administrator. Cant go further.

If there are 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 disk image (dmg) file to the desktop
- Firefox 7.0.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.
