How to Update the Firefox Browser

Firefox icon
The Firefox web browser has long been a fan-favorite.  

Firefox has survived and prospered even with intense competition from tech giants Apple Safari, Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome browsers.

Like other browsers, Firefox will update automatically on Windows.

But you can force the update yourself with this cool tip.

Here's how to do it:

  • Click the menu button Fx89menuButton (often called the hamburger) at the right side of the Firefox toolbar.
  • Go to Help
  • Select About Firefox
  • The About Mozilla Firefox window will open
  • Firefox will check for updates
  • When the download is complete, click Restart to Update Firefox
That's it.  You will now be using the latest version of Firefox.

  • These instructions are for Windows users who downloaded Firefox directly from the Mozilla website.
  • If you installed Firefox from the Microsoft Store, then the Microsoft Store will update your browser. 


Cool Tech Tips for a Cooler Life!
