new FireFox and a update

Just loaded the updated version of Firefox (4.0) .. I am running a vista 64 ... I can't seem to find a area where I can clik and ask if there are any updates etc (not for add on's) like the older version had. Am I missing it somehow ??

Thanks.

Browser update inquiry is Help>About Firefox>Check for Updates.

All other components are Tools>Add Ons>Select from the offered menu on the left.

Is Firefox 4 a beta version or regular? Should I update to version 4? Any reason not to?

Thanks.
Lynn.

Thanks DA ,, but i don't see where one can just click to see if any updates are available for FF... other then whats shown on the left. I set with that... it's when a new version of FF comes out sometimes I used to be able to click see updates etc .. they must have done away with that.

Browser update inquiry is Help>About Firefox>Check for Updates. The radio button is about 3/8 of an inch below the bold black word Firefox, "Check for Updates".

On my computer it says 'firefox is up to date.' I guess that would change to 'check for updates' if updates were available.

Bob,

Where are you looking? The portal on the Help>About Firefox or the menu provided by the Add-ons entry on the Tool drop down menu?

It's where you saw 'check for updates.'

RE: new FireFox and a update

Thanks all ... I see it now, just threw me off ... I guess if there is an update it will indicate to check for it.

You guys are great!!!!

Bob,

No big thing here, but so not to confuse others:

When I use the Help>About Firefox I get the presentation with the radio button "Check for Updates". After I press the radio button the response is what you show. Are we in agreement or is there something different?

Nothing different except that I have never seen anything there except what is there now. I'm guessing that if there are updates I don't have I will see the radio button with 'check for updates.' I'll keep watch on it to find out.

Mine is always just like bob414's. For some reason mine seems to update automatically. I already had FF4 when others here were asking about it.

I have Firefox 3.6.16.

If I click on Tools, About Mozilla Firefox is at the bottom of the list. It tells what version I have.

Above that in the drop down box is Check for Updates. I do that and it tells me there is a new version available, and the choices are Ask later, No Thanks or Get the new version.

I haven't gotten the new version; waiting to see what others say about it.

MY FF4 is fully update along with the fully updated add-ons. The radio button is there. Who knows? Things like this make the world go around.

Is Photobucket working ok with FF4? When I went to download it...

I got a warning box saying that the add on for Photobucket uploader 1.3 and Microsoft NET Framework assistant 1.2.1 were not yet ready.

Works OK for me Sandy. I haven't seen that warning.

Thanks, Bob. Nice to see you. We miss you over at the Test Forum. Its been really slow there for a while but hopefully some Spring pics can't be too far off.

RE: new FireFox and a update

it sounds like it may just be that uploader add on that is not working yet, that one always seems to take them a long time to make it compatible.
