Firefox completed 2 updates this morning!
1) To correct a problem with latest Windows 10 update.
2) A normal system update.

But I haven't had any Windows updates, however, I'll update Firefox and hope for the best.

59.0.3 is the current latest version of Firefox ...

Hmmm  :-\  I seem to be on v.60.0.b16 . . . somehow I have got on to the "beta update channel" . . .

But I'm pleased to report no "issues" so far  :)

Brian - I've downloaded the Firefox update 59.0.3, I'll think about the Windows update and if I decide to do it then I'll do it during the evening.

Check mike175 comments before you start doing the Windows update, re speed of download against time to finish.

The Windows update has finished downloading, now I've got a message asking me when it's convenient to finish installing.  The time is set for 19.30hrs, so that'll do for me as I'm off the laptop now until tomorrow morning.

Lizzie: Just remember your computer lets you know that reboot required, then even when machine starts normal more updates downloaded to finalize the system!

I always try to do a manual restart at a time when I don't need to use the computer because the update can cause a very slow boot up
