The panel appears frquently. Once I click on the update button the moving blue line appears and nothing more happens for minutes and minutes. Also the "hide" button doesn't work

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

If there are problems with updating or with the permissions then best 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 application and save the disk image file to the desktop

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

Thank you for your response just to clarify it's an iMac, not a phone. Sorry if I pressed the wrong button. attached is 2 jpegs of the prompt I get, and what stays onscreen

I'm using the current version of firefox which I downloaded 10 days ago - new 2nd hand computer with a new HD (27" screen) that had been returned to factory settings. Should I just delete FF and re-load it?

Your question was posted under the Firefox OS product which is Mozilla's own mobile operating system. I have now moved this to the Firefox for Desktop product.
