Firefox - Update to the Latest Firefox Version

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

  1. On the menu bar click the Firefox menu and select About Firefox.
  2. The About Firefox window will open. Firefox will begin checking for updates and downloading them automatically.
  3. When the updates are ready to be installed, click Restart to update Firefox.

Important: If the update didn't start, didn't complete or there was some other problem, you can go to the Systems & Languages page to download and install the latest version of Firefox for your system and language or you can use this download link (see How to download and install Firefox on Mac for more information).

Stay safe: Download only from the official Mozilla links above to avoid malware.

Update settings can be changed in Firefox Preferences. Click the menu button Firefox Menu icon and choose Preferences. In the General panel, scroll down to the Firefox Updates section.

This article, like all Firefox support, is brought to you mostly by volunteers, who keep Mozilla proudly independent and open source. Keep browsing freely!
