I am running with Firefox version 3.5.7. I am trying to update to a more recent version. So far, the update has been running for 4 hours. For most of the time it has been downloading versoin 3.6.18. Why am I hanging trying toi update?


I have an old version of Firefox - Version 3.5.7.

I am trying to update to the current version. As part of the update, the system is first loading all of the intermediate versions.

I started the update 4 hours ago. It is still running. Most of the time, it has been downloading version 3.6.18. I am letting it run.

Is there any other way to get the most recent version?

Thank you. That is basically what I did. I gave up on the update and downloaded a fresh version of Firefox.
