I have an odd error that started with the 3.6 series and still is present in 4.0. I had the automatic updater fetch the 3.6.11 version to my firefox which prompted me with an "apply updates" option, the update installed fine, though when I tried to "check for updates" at a later date, I could not as it still says to apply 3.6.11. I have since been installing updates manually though I feel this opens me up to security issues as my response time is obviously slower than if I have automatic fully working again.

My question is I need to know where these update prompts are stored so I can remove it manually. I have tried searching myself to no avail even tried a complete wipe of firefox and the issue still persists. Any help would be appreciated. :4-dontkno

Let's make sure what version of FF is really present. Help>About Mozilla Firefox. What does it say?

Just remembered that old (2.X) Versions had Tools>Options>Advanced>Update>Show Update History. I also looked through About:Config and couldn't find a setting for a History Log.

Corday,
It is under Tools>Options>Advanced>Updates for the Update logs (Show Update History). Mine is empty since I had to create a new profile for FF 4 (6-8 yr. old profile finally gave up the ghost), but it is there.

On Win 7 updates go to the folder at "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox".
To solve the poster's problem, you can delete the contents of that folder (XML files and logs) and they will regenerate on the next update.
