I'm running  Firefox 21.0  but  "check for updates" says "Firefox is up to date". If I download the v22.0 installer it says it needs XP sp2.

I just use Firefox portable which can update itself regardless of the OS version. If you want to use the normal built-in updater you'll need to install this addon:

If you just want to install the new version manually then you'll have to use Application Compatibility Launcher... but how did you install Firefox 21 then? :sneaky:

ok it worked this time, default download is "Firefox Setup Stub 22.0.exe" but full version "Firefox Setup 22.0.exe" works for mauall install.  I wonder why it stopped auto-updating though.

Firefox 12 or later are blocking Autoupdate notifier on Windows 2000.

So I think that it would not work on Windows 2000.

It should autoupdate with the addon linked above in #2.

Thank you. I have  in about:config , "app.update.url" with default value "https://aus3.mozilla...ION%/update.xml"

 

You said to create new key "app.update.url.override" and replace "%OS_VERSION%" with "Windows_NT% 205.1.3.0% 20 (x86)" ?

OK, new name  =  app.update.url.override

 

Value

https://aus3.mozilla.org/update/3/%PRODUCT%/%VERSION%/%BUILD_ID%/%BUILD_TARGET%/%LOCALE%/%CHANNEL%/Windows_NT%205.1.3.0%20(x86)/%DISTRIBUTION%/%DISTRIBUTION_VERSION%/update.xml

I think you can also create user.js in profile directory and add:

user_pref("app.update.url.override", "https://aus3.mozilla.org/update/3/%PRODUCT%/%VERSION%/%BUILD_ID%/%BUILD_TARGET%/%LOCALE%/%CHANNEL%/Windows_NT%205.1.3.0%20(x86)/%DISTRIBUTION%/%DISTRIBUTION_VERSION%/update.xml");

So it works, the latest firefox version 23.0.1 auto-updated with "app.update.url.override". Thanks BWC. :)

Auto-update stopped working, hangs.

 

I downloaded full version Firefox and it says it requires XP sp2 to work.

 

Any ideas?
