Are we supposed to update Firefox, or not?


I have been updating firefox regularly for about a year with no problems so far.
The best way i found is to run Firefox as root, as follows:
Click open a terminal window, type firefox then when firefox starts go to the help tab, go to about and firefox checks for latest updates and it updates itself.
Do a restart and check the about function until there are no more updates, then close the terminal window and now you are set.

Just run FF as default user spot, saving to the Downloads folder; then click on the Downloads desktop icon and move files elsewhere as needed.

Here's the approach I use when FF indicates an available pgrage. FF runs normally as user "spot". Since it's impossible to upgrade under normal use, LH offers a friendly Menu option to allow running FF in a mode (root) for updating.

See pic below.

Firefox isn't showing a Help or About option when opened from Console.

Also, I'm getting this in Add-On updates:

Is there a preferred way to update VLC in Puppy LH64?

Never mind ... I ignored the instructions - opened "Firefox Help" from the Menu - clicked on the pop-up for the update - chose Reboot - clicked on Firefox Root in the window - allowed update to run - closed Firefox Root - opened Firefox Spot from the desktop - it checked Add Ons for compatibility & no problems ... thanks!
