Why do I need to update Firefox? I don't even use it. And I've already removed Java 6

If you don't use FireFox you could uninstall it . Use RevoUninstaller to get a clean uninstall . Make sure the Mode is Advanced and click next allow it to Open the Firefox built-in uninstaller let it run once its done click on Finish . Don't restart if it says to . Back on RevoUninstaller click on Next so it could locate the registry files click on the Select All button click Delete after then click on the Next button . Do the same for left over files and folders.
