Step-by-Step: How to Ensure Your MetaMask is Current on Firefox


Could you guide me through the process of updating the MetaMask extension in my Firefox browser?


Start by launching your Firefox browser.

Step 2: Access Add-ons Manager

Type `about:addons` in the Firefox address bar and press Enter. This will take you to the Add-ons Manager.

Step 3: Locate MetaMask

In the Add-ons Manager, find the MetaMask extension in the list of your installed add-ons.

Step 4: Check for Updates

Click on the gear icon (⚙️) in the top-right corner of the Add-ons Manager page, and select ‘Check for Updates’. Firefox will search for updates to all your installed add-ons, including MetaMask.

Step 5: Update MetaMask

If there is an update available for MetaMask, Firefox will automatically download and install it. You may need to restart Firefox to complete the update process.

Step 6: Verify the Update

After restarting, you can verify that MetaMask has been updated by clicking on the MetaMask icon and selecting ‘Settings’ > ‘About’. Here, you’ll see the current version of your MetaMask extension.

Automatic Updates

By default, Firefox is set to update your add-ons automatically. If you wish to change this setting for MetaMask, you can do so in the MetaMask add-on’s preferences within the Add-ons Manager. Scroll down to the ‘Allow automatic updates’ field and adjust according to your preference.


If you encounter any issues or the update does not occur, you can try locking and then unlocking the MetaMask app. This can sometimes trigger an update. If the issue persists, consider reinstalling MetaMask or contacting their support for assistance.

Remember, keeping your browser and its extensions updated is key to ensuring a secure and smooth online experience..
