Firefox refuses to update past v2 despite numerous attempts

Hi! After seeing repeated nag msgs from youtube etc informing me I was using an out of date browser, I downloaded v 3.6 from mozilla website. I ran the program... it did 'a little housekeeping' and updated my FF, or so I thought... fast forward a couple of months later and I'm still seeing the nag msgs. Turns out my firefox didnt update! So in desperation I uninstalled FF completely, then installed v3.6. What a surprise... I'm still on FF2.02!!! It's getting to the stage now where despite my love for FF I am going to have to stop using it and switch to a browser that actually updates properly so I can protect myself from the current swathe of ridiculous popups etc. Anyone have any ideas on how I can update my FF to something relevant to this decade? :D

A few times a week

Hi, I've tried to install FF3 three times since it came out. Each time was a disaster, favorite bookmarks were erased and any attempt to do an internet search locked up the computer, it took weeks to solve each time. I've learned to hate and fear FF3, but now theres no choice. Help, please? Now I have to install it, what can I do to make this go smoothly?

I've copied all my files and bookmakers to disk, just in case. BTW I have a Del 3000, 5 years old, XP, with all its standard software, other than kodaks easyshare there are no difficult or demanding software added. thanks Roger

Sometimes when I do a google search all my tabs and tool bars will disappear and the page will go to a blank yahoo search page. This happens several times a day and it's very frustrating to lose all my tabs and have to close everything and start over. It seems like it's crashing however I don't get the pop up to report the crash. What's the deal with this?? Does firefox not like XP? I never had this issue with my laptop that has vista (can't use it at the moment since my daughter cracked the LCD)

Recently I had someone fix another problem on my computer, and I'm guessing he checked the "do not warn me again" box in the download manager when it warned him he was about to open a .exe file. I want that warning to show in the future, but I'm not sure how to "uncheck" that box so it will be enabled again. I have no way of contacting the tech support person again to ask him. I have Firefox 2.0.0.20.
