Dear Supporter,

I got a notification from a website that FireFox is not up to date. On closer examination, this is indeed the case. Updates were supposed to be done automatically.

I changed Ubuntu's update server to main server; this had no effect.

In settings preferences under updates I see: FireFox Updates Keep FireFox up to date for the best performance, stability and security. Version 88.0 (64bit) Whats new Mozilla FireFox for Ubuntu canonical – 1.0

There is no option to check or disable for automatic updates. As far as I can remember, update to this version was automatically.

In settings help under About Firefox nothing appears about updates.

OS is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS notification: system-up-to-date I assume that should be allright?…

Thunderbird is 68.10.0 That seems ok...

Thank you very much

Indeed, it seems that there were no more new updates for FF in the repository. General support for Ubuntu 16.04 ended in April 2021: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu

That will be the cause, FF 88.0 is from April 19, 2021.

I kept getting the question if I wanted to upgrade Ubuntu, but I clicked ¨Remind me later¨ by default, because version 16.04 is still safe until April 2024, I thought that was good enough for me...

But how to get that device so far to ask for Ubuntu upgrade now? Here I found: https://askubuntu.com/questions/735538/how-do-i-install-updates-after-dismissing-the-popup

Thanks again for the support!

You are using Firefox from the Ubuntu repositories and it is possible that your old Ubuntu version is no longer supported by Ubuntu software management and you have to switch to Firefox from the Mozilla server.

Verify that you meet the System Requirements (GTK+ and GLib) for the current Firefox release.

You can find the full installer of the current Firefox release (93.0) in all languages and all operating systems here:

Note that your Thunderbird version is also seriously outdated (current is 91.2.0).

Thank you very much cor-el, for your answer!

Somehow I was afraid that some malware changed some flag somewhere...

I'm going to work on it.
