Google Earth Plugin Outdated Version

I checked my plug-in and was told the Google Earth Plugin was outdated. I clicked on the "Update" option but nothing happened. Usually when I clicked on that option, it'll open the developer's website so I can proceed the update. But this one just sat there and nothing happened. So how could I update this plug-in?

Thank you.

Open up Add-Ons and disable the Google Earth one. Go to http://www.google.com/intl/en_us/earth/explore/products/plugin.html and install the new one over the old one, which will need enabling - simples!

Re: Google Earth Plugin Outdated Version

A couple of choices, if you want the latest version of Google Earth and the plugin, get it from http://www.google.com/earth/index.html

If you just want the plugin, you can get it from http://www.google.com/intl/en_us/earth/explore/products/plugin.html

Re: Google Earth Plugin Outdated Version

I opened my Google Earth to check if there's any new update, none.

The 2nd link you sent me wasn't for Firefox. I am talking about the Firefox Plug-in. Usually, when I checked the Plug-in update, if there's any is out-of-date, I can just clicked the "Update" option and it'll bring me to the developer site and I'll proceed the update from there. But for 'Google Earth', it didn't do that. When I clicked on 'Update', nothing happened.

Hi

I have exactly the same problem. I have an outdated plugin but the "Update" link doesn't do anything. When i browse to the plugin link suggested by TonyE it says "Good news – you already have the Google Earth Plug-in installed. (Version 6.1.0.5001)" There appears to be no link to download the up-to-date plugin

thanks ...

Well not quite 'simples' i'm afraid. After installing the plugin, I still have 6.1.0.5001 listed, and when i enable it, firefox plugin checker tells me it's still outdated.

A restart of my machine has now fixed the problem. 6.2.0.5788 is listed and ticked by the checker.

thanks for your help....

Glad it worked. Sorry I forgot to mention that I did the 'upgrade' with Firefox closed so didn't need a restart.

pineman -- Thank you for the tip. I went to the link and downloaded the plug-in, then restart FF and now I have the latest version of Google Earth plug-in.
