I run Firefox on all three of my computers. Updates instal automatically without a problem on my desktops but my laptop was showing an error message that it couldn't do the update. I got this over a couple of updates so that it was getting pretty far out of date. So I thought the solution would be to uninstal Firefox completely and then reinstal it. Well, now I can't get it back. When I try to instal version, I get a message that says
Error opening file for writing: C:\ProgramFiles\MozillaFirefox\firefox.exe
Now what do I do? I really prefer Firefox to Explorer. Any advice/help would be welcome.Thanks!

Hi ottawa_peggy,

Try a Clean Reinstall of Firefox.
Follow the instructions provided in the links within the article also.

Hope this helps :thumbsup:
