You have a file named something.vista?

Shouldn't the file be named something.exe?

just go the download page and click on the download button. You'll get a .exe file, double click on the file and follow the on screen instructions

I took that to mean that Firefox is no longer on the laptop...
...that Firefox had been uninstalled.
Let's hope...
...that it is still there
...that the OP can find/start it
...and that it will update as you indicated.


If not, then I suggest that the OP get Firefox from here:
Download Firefox 27.0 - FileHippo.com

If the download does not start...
...click on the download arrow.
-ff2.png

If you do see the Run/Save/Cancel box...
...then click on the triangle beside the Save option
...select Save as

...and save the file to your desktop.

Try running the installation from there.

I just noticed that there is a 27.0.1:
Download Firefox 27.0.1 - FileHippo.com

But Firefox should update itself to that version.
