I cannot update my firefox. I am running on MAC OS X 10.6.8.

I cannot update my firefox. I am running on MAC OS X 10.6.8. I will begin the update process but it will never complete it - often crashes before it finishes the process. Any recommendations?

Re: I cannot update my firefox. I am running on MAC OS X 10.6.8.

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.
