    Keep getting notices to update Firefox. Have tried on numerous occasions, and it APPEARS to be downloading, but, once it says ok to restart Firefox, it's clear, it's still the old Firefox, not the newly downloaded version.
    Just did a mess of cleanup and defragging. Things working better now, but, still cannot update OS...this machine's about 5 OS behind.
    And Firefox still only goes through the motions, and still doesn't update...Any suggestions on fixing that?
    Is Firefox now also controlled buy Google?

    You could try downloading Firefox directly. However, by "5 OS behind", if you mean Windows XP or Windows Vista, see Important - Firefox is ending support for Windows XP and Vista | Firefox Help.
