I have dowloaded both 3.6 and 4.1 exe, however, I still get the urgent mesg from firefox. My download file shows that the downloads took place, but I guess they never were completely installed. How can I check to make sure the downloads are installed? Will the urgent messages stop when the downloads are truly installed?'

Do a clean (re-)install:

  • Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.
  • http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all.html
  • Uninstall your current Firefox version and remove the Firefox program folder before installing that copy of the Firefox installer.
  • Don't remove personal data if you uninstall the current version (doesn't apply to Firefox 3.0.x).
  • It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.

Your bookmarks and other profile data are stored elsewhere (not in the Firefox program folder) and won't be affected by a (re)install.
