Update this browser right now against 16 security flaws

To update Firefox, click the Settings icon (it's the one in the upper right corner with three horizontal lines) and at the bottom of the menu, click the question mark icon. Then select "About Firefox."

Firefox will automatically check for a new updates. If you see a "36.0" then you're already up to date. Otherwise, you'll need to wait for the update to download and then click the "Restart to update Firefox" button.

When Firefox restarts, you'll see another feature that was added in this version. It's called Firefox Hello and it lets you create video chats with other Firefox users, no extra programs or new online accounts needed.

Simply click the smiley-face Firefox Hello button in the menu bar to start a chat. You'll get a link to send to the person you want to talk to. When they click the link, you'll instantly be chatting in your browser. Simple.

Another update in Firefox 36 is something that doesn't matter right now, but will in the future. It's HTTP/2, which is the next Web standard for, well, everything.

Its goal is to make the browser faster and more secure from the ground up. Click here to learn more about this important new Web standard and how it's going to change the future Internet.

One thing that didn't get into this version of Firefox is an alternative to Adobe's Flash. Click here to learn how you can stay safe from the increasing number of Flash security problems no matter what browser you use.
