Apparently, I NOW have Firefox v. 3.6.3 from my previous version - without my confirmation/acknowledgment. :thumbsup:

You should leave automatic updates turned on as it always makes sure you have the latest and safest version. :thumbsup:

I'll keep the autupdate on then. I could have sworn it previously asked first before plodding ahead. :thumbsup:

Yes, I believe I remember it asking previously before installing, but it doesn't really matter to me, as I would just allow it anyway. Like I said, the auto-update is a good thing, as it makes sure Firefox stays up to date. You can dot the "Ask me what to do" setting and Firefox will ask you before updating. It will still check automatically (if above "Firefox" box is checked...see above picture), but will ask you before taking action. If I were you, I would just leave it alone. Auto-updates means you don't have to interact with it...the software takes care of it for you. :flowers:

Cheers. :thumbsup:
