I get a message saying that Firefox must be updated, but when I click on the update box, nothing happens... Why?

Every time I open Firefox, I get a message that an update is available, but when I click on update, nothing happens.

I have a Mini Mac OS X, version 10.6.8

I have a 1.83 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

It is 2.5 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM memory.

I don't know what all this means, but I thought you should know that. Thank you.

If he has problems with the update or with the permissions then best is to download the full version and trash the version currently installed to do a fresh install of the new version.

Download a new copy of the Firefox application and save the file on the desktop disk image (dmg)

Your personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder, so you will not lose your bookmarks and other data to personal when you uninstall and (re) install Firefox.

  • When click the "back" button after filling out web form, I can't, a message says that Firefox must send information that will be rpeat any action... Why can I go back?

    My current Firefox is version 9.0.1 update
    "when I click on the"back"button after filling web form or make payment online etc, I can't go back to my homepage, if I press the BACK BUTTON (arrow) a message said.
    "Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (for example, a search or order confirmation) that was carried out earlier.

    I don't want to re - order or repeat the process over. The only thing I can do is to leave Firefox and start again which is very painful.

    Any solution will be appreciated.

    Older Firefox had this coming message in case you have used the back to go to a page that is requested from the server with the POST data specific to a form previously sent.

    You receive an alert to send POST data if you return to a page or refresh a page that was requested in advance from the server by submitting form via a (hidden) MESSAGE form data.

    Firefox can only make sure to get the same page send this POST form.

    Firefox doesn't know what it means shape data, so Firefox asks for confirmation before sending the form data so action can you take to repeat an action and buy another article or post a message once.

    A way to prevent that pop up is not to use the back button, but to open the links on a page that have been requested from a server by sending a MESSAGE form in a new tab (window) with a middle click or a Ctrl + left click.

    Then you can close the tab or window to go back.

  • Why do I get messages saying that I have not destroyed tabs; I ususally click on the red dot. why I get this error message?

    In the past I could navigate from one site to another without closing a tab. The messages now appear that say I have does not close a tab and need to close or to restore. I tried closing of tabs as I've used them but my tab bar shows no tabs open when I close Firefox. When I restart Firefox I get messages saying that I did not close the tabs! It's very annoying. How do I put it back for when I click the red dot, it is closed. and when I restarted Firefox it just goes to my home page? I use a Mac 10.6.8

    No, there is no problem now with this parameter when the bug is fixed.
    the problem is basically firefox 20 wrong classifies this way to close the browser as an accident & will launch the restore function of session at the next launch of the browser. the key to everything: config above completely shuts down service sessionrestore for accidents.

    Once the bug should be fixed in firefox 21, I would recommend resetting browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash back to its default value "true" If, so that you get the benefit of a restored session, where firefox crashes really some time.
