Cannot Update Firefox

I've always been able to check for updates manually in Firefox Portable. However, now when I go to Help and About Firefox, the program no longer checks for updates. It says Updates disabled by your system administrator.

Is there a way to fix this so I can check for updates again and continually updating the program?

Thanks!

Just install the new version over the old one

Hello and welcome Motormaster,

Updating from within Firefox itself might work for a while but you miss updates of the Firefox Portable Launcher that way. Its better to update with the "Installer"-package from the apps section of this website.

Firefox Portable has a dedicated support page here:
https://portableapps.com/support/firefox_portable
with specific details on updating here:
https://portableapps.com/support/firefox_portable#upgrading

Or you might consider using the PortableApps.com Menu. You get an automatic updater for officially released appd from PortableApps.com.
