How can I manually update Firefox? Auto updates fail and end up making my computer hang for 10 minutes on startup.
Firefox, after starting up my computer, fails the autoupdate every day. It leaves my computer hanging much longer than I would enjoy. I would like to know how I can manually update firefox and/or prevent future issues.
Every time Firefox opened
== 3.6.2 or a little before.
Help > Check for updates
To turn of auto update: Tools > options > Advanced >Update - and un-tick Firefox
Yeah, but I still want to upgrade firefox manually.
That's what the first thing will do. Only do it when you want to update.
BUT I CAN'T UPDATE TO BEGIN WITH
No need to shout. You asked "I would like to know how I can manually update firefox and/or prevent future issues." That's the question I answered.
You didn't say you'd tried a manual update and it failed. If so I suggest you uninstall and reinstall.
Either the latest (3.6.6) from the Mozilla website or another version from http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/
