I just checked and mine is already updated to the latest.

I'm not totally pleased with Firefox since its transition to Quantum. Many of my favorite add-ons are no longer supported since the change. The biggest disappointment is the lack of support for Tab Mix Plus, which made Firefox a stellar browser for me. It has been a hard adjustment doing without TMP, and I am seriously considering dropping back to Firefox 56 because of it. I *really* hate not having TMP.

Another irritant is that the new Firefox will not allow me to override expired website certificates. I fully understand the security issue, but sometimes that is the ONLY way to access certain websites. A good example is the recent problems I had accessing the control panel for A Small Orange (ASO). I had no choice but to use IE.  >:(
