I have a MAC, I was using OS X Leopard & Firefox wouldn't update because the OS was out of date or something to that effect. I've upgraded to Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and Firefox still hasn't updated. And there are sites I can't access until Firefox is updated and some sites I can't access using Safari! So I have to go back & forth, not fun!!

Hi Need2no

1. Download a copy of the latest firefox from http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all.html

2. Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean install.

3. Install the version that you have downloaded.

Do not select to remove your personal data, your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks or other personal data.
