Why does Firefox not update automatically nor allow me to manually update?
I'm running version 3.0.5, but didn't notice it wasn't updating until websites started complaining recently. When I try to upload manually from the website, the program downloads but will not copy into my applications folder. It says there is already an existing file, but when I click "Replace", it says I "do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items."
I've looked in to ways that Firefox should automatically update. Mine does not offer to update from the "About Firefox" screen. When I go to Preferences -> Advanced -> Update, under "Automatically check for updates to:" everything is checked, but the box for Firefox is grayed out so I can't touch it.
I don't want to uninstall and reinstall because I'm afraid to lose all my saved passwords and bookmarks.
