Hi bernano397,

You should take a look at the Knowledge Base article Update Firefox to the latest release. There is a lot of good information in there and some troubleshooting steps as well.

If that doesn't work, you might want to try installing a fresh copy of Firefox:

I would suggest that you first back up your personal information and bookmarks, just in case. You can find details in the article Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles.

Hopefully this helps!

There was a security update for Firefox 11 Beta that I installed on my Windows computer on Feb 17th. If you use the Firefox Update method you can see if the update was already installed by checking in your Firefox Advanced preferences Update tab and clicking the Show Update History button. The last security update was Firefox 11 Beta 3, as shown in the attached image.

P.S. The update server could just be busy. You can always download Firefox Beta and install it over your current version. You can get the latest Firefox Beta (currently 11.0 beta 3) from this link:
