Firefox won’t update Gigastrand 3.0

Firefox periodically does automatic updates and in Gigastrand 3.0, it tries to install an update but errors out before completion.

The issue stems from a permissions error in the installation folder. This can be fixed by changing the ownership in the install folder to the active user. This can be accomplished by following the instructions below.

  1. Go to Computer > root > opt
  2. Right-click the firefox folder
  3. Go to Root Actions > Ownership to active user

Restart Firefox and it will install the update successfully. This should fix the error permanently.

This error is only known to manifest itself in Gigastrand OS 3.0 and 3.1.
