Whoah a great one ;)
Noticed from one other forum - just had to post this here.
Maybe someone has posted this already, or you know it anyways.
I couldn't decide where to post it but decided to post to off-topic.

And it's really easy to use, if someone has any troubles;
WindizUpdate requires a browser plugin to be able to determine what updates your computer needs. For Firefox, this will require download and installation of an extension.

Click on the link that says "download and install". If nothing appears to happen look for a message under the menu that says "To protect your computer, Firefox prevented this site from installing software on your computer."

To the right of that message, click on Edit Options...and select "Allow."

Then return to the link and click on "download and install"

After the installation is complete click "Scan for Updates" and click "Allow this request" when asked if the website can collect information about your computer profile. You may have to do this several times.

Note: If you receive an error message, you may have to close and reopen Firefox, then return to the WindizUpdate site.

When the Scan is complete you can review and install any updates found.

Just downloading few updates from there..

FireFox blocks the software and says it is prevented the software from installing? An I cant install it if I disable that Blocker! FireFox just closes?
Regards RockyIV

PS: No big deal, because I already like FF as it is!
