Default FireFox Upgraded

When one see this at the top then check to make sure you got the next Upgrade.

It is now 50.01.............. My F.F. on this PC did it automatically.

Well if your F.F. Browser is sloppy like mine then you will need to do a manual upgrade from 50.2 to yesterday 53.0

They say it does these upgrades in automatic, well I never.... I guess F.F. saw me coming and decided to play games with me.


To do it the easy way go to the top right hand corner. Click om the 3 horizontal bar thingy. Go down to the Question mark and click it. Now it should take things from there. The Browser should close and install the upgrade then restart by itself.

I try to avoid these upgrades if possible. Especially on advertising paid sites. Even if there is no learning curve involved, all to often the upgrade consists of a way to add more advertising to the site.

Firefox was my browser of choice for many years until it started crashing every single day. Even after uninstalling and reinstalling, it kept crashing. I won't use it anymore, so I don't know if the alleged upgrade will be any improvement.

pshh.. Firefox?

I am using Edge now on my new lap top.
Love it.
Windows 10 has been a force to be reckoned with, however.
