Running 3.6.16, my help menu shows "Apply Downloaded Update Now". If I select this, nothing much happens and FF asks to restart, upon which the Help menu still has the same item. I had to upgrade to 3.1.17 by hand. I want to know: what files (and where are they) do I delete to make "Check for Updates" work normally?

See:

Remove the files in the updates and updates\0 folder.
You may need to delete active-update.xml and updates.xml as well if present.
