until JAWS says list box and press the space bar.
down arrow to the advanced category and press the tab key twice.

You don't have it set to Never Check For Updates on the Updates page of
Options, or it would have a Check For Updates button.

Thanks, Bill, I did this and there is no update button, when I used
Convenient OCR on the About screen it came out a bit jumbled, but it
seemed to say somewhere that Firefox was up to date. However, when I use
Jaws Key+Control+V Jaws tells me my version is 47.0.1 and when I just
went to the Firefox download page and downloaded the installer it has a
file name of " Firefox Setup Stub 49.0.1".
Oh well, stranger things have happened and I'll just install that latest
version from the installer.

Regards,
Sieghard

Hi, Sieghard. You don't need to go anywhere to force an update check.
Simply press ALT plus the letter H to reach the help menu. Following
this, press the letter A to reach the "About" dialog. Once this page
loads, if your updates are set to "Never Check for Updates", you will
see a Check for Updates button. It will already be focused on this
button. Just press the Space Bar to start a check for updates. Then you
will either get a notice that you can update, or you will hear silence.
If you hear silence, you already have the latest version of Firefox. If
you see an Update button, press the Space Bar again. Once the update has
downloaded, you will get a notice to restart Firefox. Press the Space
Bar again, and Firefox will reload with the latest updated version.

I have had occasions when I opened Firefox and it told me it was doing
and update and would restart. Anyhow, if it can be set to manual, where
do I go to force a check for updates?

Firefox will only update itself if that option is checked, and if the
Firefox Maintenance Service is running in the background.

I'm on version 47 something and I see now option to check for updates. I
thought Firefox is supposed to update itself, but when I open it and let it
sit there nothing happens.

And you would make your computer vulnerable to security issues fixed in
more
recent versions, too. For your own protection, just don't do that.
