Update Firefox to the latest version

By default, Firefox is set to automatically update itself but you can always do a manual update. Here's how:

  1.  Click the menu button New Fx Menu , click help Help-29 and select About Firefox.
  2. The About Firefox window will open and Firefox will begin checking for updates and downloading them automatically.



  3. When the updates are ready to be installed, click RESTART FIREFOX TO UPDATE.

     

 

Important: If the update didn't start, didn't complete or there was some other problem, please download and install the latest Firefox version from mozilla.org for your operating system and language.
