Switching to Firefox 2.0 from Firefox 1.5 (or lower).

If you find you are still running the 1.5 version of the Firefox browser, you should definitely change over to the 2.0 version. There will not be any more security updates from Mozilla, so we highly recommend following their lead and going with 2.0. As we mentioned, we'll first uninstall 1.5, then download and install 2.0.

  1. Click on Start and go to Control Panel.


  2. Double click on Add or Remove Programs.


  3. Look for Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.xx under currently installed programs. Once you locate it, select the program and click on Remove.


  4. You will get a screen which will ask if you are sure you want to uninstall it. Click on Yes.


  5. Now you will get a message saying Firefox is removed from your computer. Click on OK.


  6. Now go download the most recent Mozilla Firefox (open this page in a new window or tab, then click on the download firefox button on the right).


  7. Click on Run.


    You will see the progress box.


  8. Click on Run again.


  9. The Setup Wizard will start. Click on Next.


  10. Select I accept the terms in the License Agreement and click on Next.


  11. Select Standard and click on Next (or if your familiar with it, choose the Custom).


    You will see the installing progress bar.


  12. Click on Finish.


  13. Now open a web page and click on Help and then About Mozila Firefox.


    Hurray!! You can see that your version is updated to
