[SOLVED] how do I force firefox to update?


I normally like to do my updates at the start of the day, check for kinks and restart my machine. When the update pops up midday, I forget about it, accidentally close it or end up checking the not now when the window is active when I don't expect it. Not to mention I have 12 other apps I am using and do not want to restart at that time. Is there a way to make firefox update or check for updates instead of waiting for it to show up?
