A)  Open Firefox and check to see you have a recent version.

  1. At the time of this writing, the latest version is 58.
  2. It is not absolutely essential to have the latest version unless something you are trying to do requires it. It is a good idea to maintain currency within 1-3 versions.

  4. At the top of the Firefox window click the Firefox button, go over to the Help menu and select About Firefox.

  6.    When the updates are downloaded and ready to be installed, click Restart to Update. Firefox will be restarted and the updates will be installed.
