I have a four year old version of Firefox and it won't let me update to the most recent version. Help.
Current installed version of Firefox is 126.96.36.199 - 2006. I'm trying to upgrade to 3.6.8; while it will download, I don't get a prompt to drag it into the Applications folder. I think my installed version is so old it won't recognize the new one. What do I do to make the new version install?
