Hello, I currently have Firefox version 16.0.2 installed on my laptop with Windows 7.

Every time I attempt to go to the update site (http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/) and click on the green update button, I am sent to the 'Thank you' page, and no download begins.

After that page, it attempts to redirect, I am assuming to the download; URL is https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-17.0.1&os=win&lang=en-US

I receive the following error: Unable to connect - Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at download.mozilla.org.

Please let me know how I can update my Firefox to the latest version. Many thanks. J. Ng

Thanks for letting us know about this. For now try this direct download link https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/17.0.1/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Setup%2017.0.1.exe

Good day,

Same problem until I cleared the 67MB cached web content under:

Tools>Options>Network

It immediately took care of it without a browser restart.

Cheers!
