Ever since firefox started the auto update thing, it has not worked on my computer. I run windows 7 on a non-admin account. Several versions ago it was supposedly fixed so that even non-admin accounts will update.
I have verified that it is set to automatically install updates and use background service to install updates is checked and always has been. When I go to help -> about, it tells me there is an update available and that I need to go manually download it. If I run firefox with an admin user, it will start updating when I go to help -> about.
Anyone know what the deal is? For the firefox 18 to 19 update I did a full uninstall of firefox, but here we are a week after firefox 20 was released and I'm on 19.0.2. Oddly, it does seem to have gotten the minor version updates... unless 19.0.2 was just the version it was at when I did my uninstall and fresh install.
