    Oops, I'm only on 38.05...

    Doesn't help that I can't run the updater within Firefox on my company laptop because the VPN blocks it....

    It sounds as if your company is using the "ESR" version, for which the current build is 38.5.2:

    Download Firefox Extended Support Release in your language

    The localized release versions are available at the link in the first post of this thread.

    Cheers,

    Oh it's not a company-wide OS, I've downloaded in personally, the manual installer works if I download it from the browser, but the updater (in the about section of the browser) doesn't work.

    This really doesn't have anything to do with your OS.
    Some companies who use Firefox in the Enterprise setting use the ESR (Extended Support Release) versions, rather than the consumer/public "Release" builds.
    And they may block end users from installing the consumer builds or from updating Firefox.

    I've downloaded in personally, the manual installer works if I download it from the browser, but the updater (in the about section of the browser) doesn't work.
    That might be because your employer is using the ESR version?
    The most current ESR build is 38.5.0.
    There is no version 43 for ESR.
    So, perhaps it is not updating because you have the most current build of the ESR version.

    You might want to check with your company IT folks.

    OTOH, if you do have full administrative and download/install rights for your system (versus your employer's controlling it), then there could be something "off" with your Firefox settings and/or your profile (e.g. conflict with a security program, etc) that is blocking the download.

    In any event, this is more of a "news" thread than a "support" thread.
    So, if you'd like to work on this, you might wish to post a new topic in the "Normal Threads" section >>HERE<<.

    That was a typo, my mistake, my brain is frazzled at work. I meant it's not a company-wide deployment of Firefox, it's not an ESR release.

    I can install programs but the group policy restricts me from altering the VPN or AV settings. The work-around is to visit the Mozilla website and download and install the new version that way.

    This wasn't a support request, merely an observation of what I already knew.

    Thanks.

    You might want to check with your company IT folks about that workaround.
    Those Group Policy restrictions are usually put in place for a reason.
    And some Enterprises don't look favorably upon end users who bypass them.
    Ultimately, if it's their computer/device or if they have implemented BYOD restrictions, then going around the restrictions could be a problem.

    <just sayin'>
