Stops loading setup 11.o exe (http://mirror.metrocast.net) at 99%
I have been offline for a long time, so nearly every time I load Firefox I get an invite to update. The last was Firefox setup 11.0 exe (http://mirror metrocast.net). I've tried several times to load and at 99% it freezes up. Then I repeat this cycle over and over. I'd like to either skip this update and move on or find a shortcut to load all available updates at one time with no more problems.

It is possible that your anti-virus software is corrupting the downloaded files or otherwise interfering with downloading files by Firefox.
Try to disable the real-time (live) scanning of files in your anti-virus software temporarily to see if that makes downloading work.
See "Disable virus scanning in Firefox preferences - Windows"
