I have an older version of Firefox 3.6.6 I believe I am having an issue with one of the websites I sign into. Is there any way to update to the newest version. Without losing all my bookmarks and saved pass words?

Hello johngervais, the latest firefox version is 26.0 (today 4 Jan 2014).

note that Firefox no longer works with some versions of Windows XP, if you have xp with sp2 and above you can update to latest version, see : Firefox 26 System Requirements

if you are able to update to latest version then see : Common questions after upgrading from Firefox 3.6

see also : Firefox just updated - why is it asking me to update again?

Don't worry you won't losing bookmarks and passwords after update firefox.


thank you

As long as you have Service Pack 2 installed for WinXP, open Help > About Firefox then click Check for Updates. Firefox 3.6.6 should check for an update and then install Firefox 12.0 (an intermediary update step).

Then use About Firefox again to initiate the update to Firefox 26.0.
