I have noticed for the past 3 or 4 updates Firefox refuses to update via Help |About. It tells me there is an update I click on the button on the about page to restart the browser yet the update never installs. The only way to update Firefox is to download the installer from Firefox website.

I have cleared cache and cookies and that has done nothing to solve this issue

Hi. I've been a loyal user to Mozilla Firefox for many years now. My concern is whenever I updated the browser from the past, It deletes my settings and extensions. That's whats keeping me from updating it for quite sometime now. So Im simply afraid to do it. For example. Part of my research entails an extension that downloads and converts from a video site. After an update this is removed. I have to re-install everytime. I so got tired of this. Its so annoying everytime it asks for updating, I have to opt out. Is there some way I can update this without messing up my settings? Has Mozilla already worked out a version without messing with my settings? Thank you for the help.

printing the update failed message indicates you already know the cause of the failure, why no fix the code, instead of displaying the error message?

If you recall Windows 98 at one point during the installation you got a message that said "If your computer seems to not be responding for a really long time, reboot the computer". Problem with this instruction is the coders (in this case Microsoft) are aware there is a problem during the installation, otherwise, what would be the point of printing this message? So if you know the problem exists, why not fix it, instead of printing a message like that?

Which brings me to the "Update installation failed" message printed by Firefox, when it fails to update itself. Why would you code the software to tell the user the update failed, instead of just fixing the problem? Doesn't make much sense to me.

I have a remote computer that is running Windows 7 (32 bit) Firefox and java. The issue starts when java receives any update.. the machine stops function correctly for the end user and I have to remote into and re-enable the java in the browser. Is there a way to get the browser to auto accept any changes done by java, more so that the browser has been to "accept and remember"

Has anyone seen firefox autoupdate conflict with a locked screen saver on Mac OS X... preventing user from logging in to system?

A number of times when I open my macbook pro, the screen is on, but black. There are no windows visible, not even the login prompt. I end up doing a forced power off in order to log in. Recently I saw that the display was in the process of presenting the login form, and also present was the Firefox autoupdate progress bar dialog. Everything seemed locked up... no updates to the progress bar, and the login form was not accessible. The only differences this time was that the screen saver display was not blocking my view of the display... but I could see just those two items, not the full desktop. Makes me wonder if there is some sort of conflict or race condition present when autoupdate is trying to run when the screen is locked. I have since turned off Firefox's autoupdate feature and have it set to 'prompt me'. Will have to wait for the next Firefox update to see if that had an effect.

I wish I had taken a pic of the screen in that bizarre state.

If I click update on adobe to load the page to update Flash player it won't load. When I click on an email that takes me to a website to verify something (such as an ad) it won't load but just shows a black page. Have had numerous other issues lately including with my location not being detected despite the fact that I don't have the tracking blocking on. These issues are obviously not normal and I have been using Firefox for about three years now.

After installing Firefox 51.x on Mac OS Sierra, the browser doesn't appear to recognize that it has been updated. Is there a place to force this?

After installing version 51.0.1 on an iMac with the latest version of Mac OS Sierra, Firefox does not appear to recognize that the latest version has been installed. As a result, going to the "About Firefox" window shows that 51.0.1 is installed, but that I also, in contradiction to that info, can click on the button to "Restart Firefox to Update".

Following instructions for those with past issues with Firefox. I deleted Firefox from my Applications folder. Then I rebooted the computer. Finally, I downloaded and re-installed the latest version of Firefox (51.0.1) from scratch.

Unfortunately, despite this, the problem persists. How do I get Firefox to recognize that it is, in fact, running the latest version?
