Firefox Update

Several days ago I had an on-screen message telling me there was a Mozilla Firefox update. I had great difficulty installing it....right at the end a message kept appearing saying that "several files couldn't be updated" Eventually, it seemed to be installed and, on the Help menu it states Firefox 1.5 05. However, today it's all started again. Another message offering the update,yet each time I begin, it gets as far as "Firefox is installing" then, once again "several files couldn't be installed" etc. I've tried installing it from the check for updates section....same thing. I'm completely confused...can anyone help?

Same thing happened to me. I got around it by uninstalling, and reinstalling the latest version from the Mozilla website.

Thanks everyone,I seem to have updated successfully now to 1.5.06 by uninstalling and reinstalling from the website. The most difficult update I've ever encountered.

"The most difficult update I've ever encountered."

You've lead a sheltered (pc) life;-))

If I were you I would download and install the latest version for safety sake.
