Automatic update of Firefox in Vista

Automatic update of Firefox in Vista

Last year I got a PC for the kids with Windows Vista and, amongst other things, set it up with a copy of firefox 3.0.1. None of the kids accounts are administrators so every now and then software asks for the admin password to perform software upgrades.

"If you want to update Firefox for ALL the users on the computer, you are going to need sign to do the updates as an administrator. I suggest that you sign up for a free service that sends you an email whenever Firefox is updated so that you can then take 5 minutes and upgrade for everyone on the computer. I know that this is a pain, but then again, keep in mind that Firefox doesn't update to often.

A free service that will tell you when Firefox upgrades is here, but the page with try and download the latest version of Firefox first. Just cancel the download:

About halfway down the page there is a text box that says, ""Want to be notified when Firefox is updated?"" Enter your email and you'll be good to go."
