    Sorry, you have problems getting your patches installed. I have a number of things for you to look at.  First of all, are your Windows Update and the Background Intelligent Transer Services set to Automaticand started . You can check these settings by typing services.msc in the search box of the start menu.

    Sometimes in order to get patches to install correctly, you must perform these tasks manually.

    (1) Download Center to visit Microsoft:
    (2) search for each update code that begins with the letters "KB" and followed by a set of numbers (i.e. KB979309).
    3) click on the link for the download and then click on download and run.  You must accept the agreement of contract and then click on continue.
    (4) repeat this process for each download of updates Windows could not install.
    (5) to rerun the update from Microsoft, click find updates.  If all goes well, it will show that you are completely patched.

    If this does not work, try to run the Microsoft OneCare safety scanner.  Sometimes it will solve problems of hidden registry, or erase viruses can prevent the installation of patches: Click full service scan, and then Quick scan (full scan takes a long time to complete). Try the patches.

    See you soon,.

  • I have disabled the automatic update, but it will however update! How to disable?

    I use version 34 and I don't want to update becase the plugins work correctly with the newer versions. I disabled the automatic updates check in preferences, but updates of firefox sometimes! It makes me very angry, I'm tired to restore my backups. What should I do to prevent the automatic update forever! I'll be able to update the program if I need!

  • My Firefox has just automatically updated itself to the version 42. The extention under modules page does not display the extensions I have installed.

    My Firefox has just automatically updated itself to the version 42. The extention under modules page does not display the extensions I have installed. The plug in page shows the plug ins I installed. How can I fix it? This happened on my 64 bit Windows 7 partition. I installed the extension "classic add-on" to see if she could solve the problem. There is unfortunately no. I have a screenshot. I'm not sure if I have permission to upload it to the media gallery. I also use Linux, but I did not upgrade that are still there.

    It is possible that there is a problem with the files that store the registry extensions.

    Delete the files (extensions.json, extensions.sqlite, extensions.ini) extensions.* and compatibility.ini in the profile folder of Firefox to reset the extensions registry.

    New files will be created if necessary.

  • What Windows settings or services likely to affect Firefox automatic update?

    Automatic update works do not is a common problem but in my case, the culprit is probably not on the side of Firefox Firefox. I suspect this due to the fact that I can't upgrade almost any of my programs installed if they were launched during a session before the session is disconnected.

    The thing is I disabled a number of Windows services and I see this behavior for probably as long as I use this configuration optimized. Here is a list of my services system as well as their boot options and the State.

    All your mail and your preferences are stored in your profile for tuberculosis and are not overwritten when you update to a new version; However, it is always a good idea to make a backup of the directory profile, just in case something goes wrong. See to locate your profile directory.

  • TB 31.5.0 Win 7 after the TAB key for the automatic update no longer creates new address line "write" (enter the done key) but I want the TAB key! Why this keep happening after

    TB 31.5.0 Win 7 after the TAB key for the automatic update no longer creates new address line "write" (enter the done key) but I want the TAB key! Why is - this seems to happen after each automatic update? Cant we get 'option' to use the TAB key to navigate through the lines of address "write"?

    TAB through the fields that exist. It is the function of the TAB.

    Otherwise you could never use TAB to go out in a field for example: subject. It would create an indefinate number of fields and are unable to function as a TAB key.

    TAB does not back to THE fields,
