When you see the message that there is an update available do you
restart the browser? That is the only way to apply the apply is by
Whoops, I meant to say it does on my Windows 7 machine. And, also I
should clarify when I say updates in the background, that is not exactly
true. You need to restart the browser, it updates without a bar while
it starts up. If an update is available you will notice that it takes a
little longer than normal for it to start up.
