Just installed Firefox a week ago and today cannot install Windows Updates for security fixes. Assume there is a conflict having IE and Firefox. Any ideas?
thanks, J

Are you going to Windows Updates site via Internet Explorer Browser..... My Firefox is for my online browsing.... IE I use to check for/pickup my Windows updates.

No conflict having both of them on the same computer. I've even had them open at the same time. However, you must use IE to access the Windows update center.

Thanks Laura, I restored my computer back a week and for some reason that allowed me to download the updates - go figure. J

I think you probably restored it back to prior to your installation of firefox. You can only get windows updates if you are running MS Internet Explorer. You were probably running that after you restored to a week ago...right?
