Firefox Update, files open

  Tycho 12:49 17 Aug 2007

Firefox started trying to update itself about a fortnight ago and said that it needed to shut down FF and restart it to complete the upgrade.

It seems that every time it tries it can't complete the update because I have applications open and/or the wrong permissions.

I believe that I have all the right permissions because I am logged on in the administrators' group and I have shut down all the applications that are running by CTRL-ALT-DEL and closing them before clicking on the OK button.

What is my next line of attack wit this one?

I suppose that you could delete it from add remove, then run C Cleaner,Then install the new version.See if that here

I think your best line of attack would be to uninstall it. Run CCleaner click here re download the latest version and reinstall it

That sounds a good idea. Thanks folks

Next question. Can you save the bookmarks in FF?

Thanks Marg7.

It's easy when you know how but I had a real good look around and didn't find it!
