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.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== 3.6.2 or a little before.

That's what the first thing will do. Only do it when you want to update.

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/
