Why can't I download the update to Firefox?

I have a brand new I-mac and just recently added Mozilla Firefox to my browsers. I get a notice that a security update is available. When I select update, it say "connecting to update server", but it just stays on that place and never downloads the update. I can wait 5 or 6 minutes and it keeps saying "connecting to update server" but nothing else happens. I am new to Apple after saying farewell to my 8 year old Dell P.C., so everything is new to me. Is something blocking the update? I never had this problem when I used Firefox on my P.C. and since I love it as a primary browser, I want to keep everything up to date.

If there are problems with updating or with the permissions then easiest is to download the full version and trash the currently installed version to do a clean install of the new version.
Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the disk image (dmg) file to the desktop
*Firefox 17.0.1: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all.html
*Trash the current Firefox application (e.g. open the Applications folder in the Finder and drag the Firefox application to the Trash) to do a clean (re-)install
*Install the new version that you have downloaded

Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data if you uninstall and (re)install Firefox.

  • Why can't I download the updates?

    When i try to update my Adobe Premiere Pro, the updater tells me to turn off the program; I do, then it starts to download and then tells me again to turn off the program. It is already turned off though. Then i get an error message:
    Adobe CSXS Infrastructure 4
    Installation failed. Error Code: U44M1P7
    Since the program is working kind of funky, crashes alot, i thought maybe an update would fix it, but can't get anything to load.

    You may need Adobe help for this, not other users in a user to user forum

  • Why can't I download my updates...it doesn't accept my password...changed it several times no luck

    Why can't I download my updates....it says my password is wrong...changed it several times with still no luck. What's wrong? When I login to my apple ID it works..whist am I doing wrong?

    Have you tried logging out of your account by tapping on it in Settings > Store and then logging back in ?
    If that doesn't work then you could try closing the App Store app completely and seeing if you can download updates when you re-open it : from the home screen (i.e. not with the App Store 'open' on-screen) double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of the App Store app to close it, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.
    Another option is a reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

  • Why can't I download the new version of Itunes?

    Why can't I download the newest version of Itunes? My Itunes program tells me an update is availible but when I select to download nothing happens.

    Try updating your iTunes using an iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64Setup.exe) downloaded from the Apple website:
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
    Does that go through any better for you?

  • Why can't I access the updated that are pending on my phone?

    Why can't I access the updated that are pending on my phone? I've turned the phone off and also closed all the apps. But still won't allow me to access the updates. Just a blank screen.

    Another post is reporting that applying the 6.1 update fixes their issue. I'll have to wait until I am back on WiFi to try that.

  • Why can't I download the latest iTunes to my mac which is a 10.5.8

    I have got myself in a real mess, I installed the new iOS 7 onto my iPad and I don't like it so I imported all my new photos to my mac, then I reset all my settings on my iPad thinking that it would go back to the original settings but alas didn't work.
    Then I thought I would put up with it but now I cannot put my photos etc back onto the iPad because my mac needs the version of iTunes but when I try to install the new version I get a messy come up that iTunes cannot install this new version on my mac which is a 10.5.8.
    So now I am stuck with the software on the iPad I don't like and I cannot sync the iPad to iTunes
    So why can't I download the new version of iTunes to the mac which is 10.5.8

    Put simply, the minimum system requirements for iTunes have changed. You need a Mac running at least OS X 10.6.8.
    It's best you look online to see if your model of Mac can be upgraded to at least 10.6.8 "Snow Leopard". It should still be possible to order a copy of Snow Leopard if so.

  • HT201263 My iPad 1 can only be updated to iOS 5 yet most apps run on iOS 7. Why can't I make the update on my iPad 1? Is this so I buy another iPad 2+? Now why would I want to buy something that will be obsolete in a few years?

    My iPad 1 can only be updated to iOS 5 yet most apps run on iOS 7. Why can't I make the update on my iPad 1? Is this so I buy another iPad 2+? Now why would I want to buy something that will be obsolete in a few years?  I really want to purchase an Live TV plan yet I need iOS 7 to run most TV apps.
    Can Apple tell me why my iPad 1 is obsolete?
    g

    It's not obsolete as much as the first gen simply lacks the power to run the newer operating systems. IT doesn't have enough RAM. If someone managed to hack it to get iOS 6 or 7 on there they'd just have a slow, boggy and unresponsive device. (think putting windows 7 on an old laptop.
    Unfortunately software moves faster than hardware. Every thing goes obsolete. I've had my ipad 2 for two and a half years now and I know it only has so much longer left to it too. Just the 'joys' of advancing technology.

    Why can't I download the free Apple apps for my new iPhone 5S? It was set up in store and restored from my iPod Touch 5.

    Are you logged in with the same account that was used to activate the phone ? If you are, and the apps aren't showing as free, then try logging out of your account by tapping on it at the botto of the Featured tab in the App Store app and then log back in and see if they then show as free.

  • Why can't I download the waiting songs on my iTunes? I have over 2gb storage free

    why can't I download the "waiting" songs on my iTunes ? I have 2gb of free storage

    I'm guessing because the servers or part of the network is still overloaded by millions of other trying to do the same.
    Some seem to think this helped:
    Adding Open DNS servers to network preferences (2012) - https://discussions.apple.com/message/17806286
