Firefox 18.0dmg just stalls upon initiating downloading on my Mac, shows "starting..."

Im trying to upgrade to version 18.0dmg Firefox on my Mac but it always remains as "Starting" upon downloading. I currently have 11.0 running on my Mac. Can you explain what is going on? Thanks Joseph

If there are problems with updating or with the permissions then easiest is to download the full version and trash the currently installed version to do a clean install of the new version.

Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the disk image (dmg) file to the desktop

Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data if you uninstall and (re)install Firefox.
