Question Firefox Automatic Updates


Hi,

I was checking the Firefox preferences and I noticed that on the UPDATE tab under Advanced I have checked Automatically check for updates to: "Installed Add-ons" and "Search Engines" but where it says "When updates to Firefox are found:" It is grey out. (it doesn't let me select anything). Do you guys know what the problem might be? I tried disabling the firewall and nothing. Please let me know. My Firefox is not doing automatic updates.
Thanks

That's right, Firefox in Linux does not update itself. Your OS does it for you.

yes, but my OS is not doing it either! I still have ver 2.0.0.6 instead of .14
please let me know what else can I check.
Thanks.

Is OpenSuse your Linux? Check the documentation how to turn on automatic software updates.
