To update your firefox to latest repositories included Firefox simply upgrade your system...

Open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:
(when the system ask you a password give your user password, you will not see nothing when you type it, then press enter)

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Hope this helps
