I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and my Firefox version is 14.0.1. Since because of this version I can't install Firebug. So for upgrading it I searched at the Help->About in the browser window, but there is no update option. Then I searched in the Ubuntu Update Manager, and there are listed very many updates, but I didn't find "Firefox browser update". I'm new to Ubuntu, and I don't know how to work in the terminal so I haven't tried that.

So, why don't you install updates offered by the update manager? –  mikewhatever Jan 17 at 6:26

To update just Firefox, you could try the following:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get --reinstall install firefox

I'd recommend installing the rest of the updates at your earliest convenience.
