    I am running FF1.5 on RedHat FC3: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686;
    en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

    I get no indications of available FF updates.

    Edit->Preferences->Advanced shows a check box for Automatically check
    for updates to Firefox. The box is checked but both the check mark and
    the "Firefox" are greyed out.

    How can I get the auto check for updates to work? Is there a simple
    manual way to force updates?

    I've never liked this auto updates. I just go to the download site
    and download it from there:
    ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/

    Also, sometimes the auto updates can take a week.
