Firefox update fail.

Every time I'm online I get a pop up telling me I should update my browser to Firefox 22.0. I've tried several times, click on update then it spends hours trying to contact the server ! Anyone actually managed to update their Firefox like this ?

Download full package. Remove it altogether. Reboot then install

If you do that it's worth doing a backup first, so that your can transfer your bookmarks, profiles etc to the new installation. I can recommend MozBackup:
