Since about two months ago, I haven't been able to update Firefox(or any other browser for that matter). I've tried the typical method of going to Preferences, checking for updates, but I can't get passed that point. I get this error message stating "Failed to check for updates."
Chrome was giving me much of the same issue, I've allowed GoogleUpdate on my firewall rules, restarted the PC and tried again. Still got the same error message. I have no other antivirus software installed on this device other than the Windows Defender default app. Firefox hasn't told what I should be allowing past my firewall so I haven't tried anything similar for Firefox.
I also tried uninstalling Firefox, but when I tried to reinstall, I couldn't finish that process because clicking on Download Now led me to this error message stating
"Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.
We can’t connect to the server at download.mozilla.org."
I assumed this was maybe a DNS issue. I tried a DNS flush but that also was ineffective. I tried changing my DNS servers to 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52, also tried other known DNS servers but that didn't work either.
In the meantime, I'd like to at least get an offline installer going because my current version is 110.0.1.
