Running Yosemite 10.10.2 on a Macbook Air, have downloaded and installed Firefox 35.0.1 several times. Software says installation was successful each time, but it does not seem to register, and I keep getting prompts to install it.

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 or update Firefox.
