It should upgrade. If you look under Help it show show check for upgrades. When you run this it should show you if there are any upgrades available.

Next check under Tools then Options. This will pull up a new window. Click on advanced tab (right side upper) this will show you what it checks for upgrades. Firefox and Upgrades should be checked. Just under that is how it should handle the upgrades. To have it check and install automatically you should have the Automatically download and install button marked. Hit OK and it should now update automatically when you start Firefox.

It is possible that the older version has a problem with the update section. If everything was set right and it still won;t work then just go to the firefox download page and download the latest version. That should install and fix everything as well as get you up to the latest version. If you do this don't forget to save off your favorites Under your Bookmarks and then Organize there is a Import and backup option. This link should take you to the help page. You may not need this but better safe then annoyed.

The only solution is to run a factory default recovery, but you could also try installing Mozilla Firefox and see if that helps.

Firefox cant find server

As a owner of a couple Acer's and a couple more Gateways made by them I have had this issue---clearly it can be a lack of signal etc but recently two of them Firefox was the problem.

Went into the control panel and uninstalled the Firefox (you will not lose passwords etc) and then with the IE (internet explorer) went on line and installed Firefox again---fixed it and one can only guess may have picked up the problem while cruising the web--but for me it fixed it.

Of course if IE does not or any browser get you online and are wireless reset the router or call your provider.

For the firefox issue press Ctrl+Alt+Delete, choose start task manager. When the task manager comes up select the processes tab. Look for Firefox.exe then select it then press end process now close task manager and try and launch Firefox again. As for the factory settings that can be done for many different aspects of you system in different areas. But if you want everything to do a complete reformat and start from fresh. Here are the drivers and relevant things you will need for your system

If you have a flash drive available try downloading Mozzilla Firefox onto it from another computer from this site:
Load it onto your computer and see if that will get your internet going. I had the same problem and tried this, and wouldn't you know it, I like Firefox better anyway!

Task bar

Uninstall Firefox. If the icon returns then lock the taskbar and reinstall Firefox. You might also consider Google Chrome I switched to that and found it even faster and more intuitive for searches. Alternatively you can right click on the Start button, go to Properties, Taskbar and peruse your options for taskbar options. Actually you should do that first since it is a Windows issue and not a browser issue.
