I have the current version of firefox, it is up to date however it says that I have an old version of firefox and need to update. I have tried removing the program completely and re-adding it, and it still says I am not up to date on the current version. I've gone to the Help section to check our version, and we are up to date. Any help out there?

Is there an easier way to have the newest version of Firefox/Thunderbird than constantly having to update constantly? I am already up to 221 updates of Stub 24.0 with no end in sight! It is tedious, time consuming and I have no idea how long it will even take. I love Firefox, but don't know what to do.

Thanks for any help

Dear Fellows, I know this thread is closed and I'm so sorry to bother you. Unfortunately I don't have any idea how do I fix my problems with alert boxes, confirm boxes and modal windows under newer Firefox versions. All of my codes were working good till firefox 3.6.XX. I've developed my web applications using native message components (alert, confirm, prompt) and modal windows too. If I try to change to another way now, it will be very hard to me, because I have thousands of lines codes and logic blocks based on these native components. I don't wanna back developping web applications under IE, never more. Please, could you tell me how can I fix these problems or if there is another way to config the Firefox ? Thank you very much.

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and got Firefox ver 3.6.3 in the installation. Now I want to update it to newest version for the security aspect. But how do I do it? I'm new to Ubuntu, I have always used Windows so it's new to med. I did read a update instruction I found on the Mozilla website but I can not use the tips as my old version of FF looks different. I have no "check for updates" in the Help menu. In windows it's standard to download the program and then install by a install.exe program but this doesn't work in Ubuntu. Can you please help me course this is a problem for me.

In recent weeks Firefox has begun to crash repeatedly and unexpectedly - mostly when I click to open it. I often get the infuriating "well this is embarrassing" message. Most unhelpful. I send you the report of the crash and expect to hear from you as to why I am having problems but nothing happens. I can't find how to locate the "about:crashes" in the location bar. Can you explain this.
