After updating for my Mozilla Firefox, I encountered an error saying, “a connection timed out error’’ or sometimes some sort of “software update failed” message.
Welcome to the Software Update
There were problems checking for, downloading, or installing this update. Firefox could not be updated because:
Connection timed out
You can update Firefox manually by visiting this link and downloading the latest version:
I encountered this error on mozilla firefox
Mozilla Firefox is an ultimate browser which can be said as a user friendly due to the options that are provided and supported by the browser when compared to other type of browsers.
It is recommended to update Firefox for adding an additional feature to the system and to keep the Firefox stable even when attack from other things like websites.
First check your Network settings whether the connection is established or not because if the connection is not established then it is not possible for updating.
Even connection is low there is a chance that might not be installed any of the updates due to less speed of the network so its best to follow manual update installation so that there is no chance of connection timed out.
