This is the Flash forum, not really the place for this question. However the default option in Firefox in Options->Advanced->Update is to Automatically install updates. Despite this, most of the time you need to go to Firefox->Help->About to get the newest version to download. Eventually Firefox will download the latest on its own if you don't mind waiting. It probably has a queue that sends out update notices in batches so the entire world doesn't update at once taking down the site.
You are not really talking about updating FireFox, right? But rather the Flash pluggin for FF? since there is no IE
That's the Flash pluggin version and has nothing at all to do with either FF or IE.
Almost all modern Flash detection methods for placing Flash in a Web page (for example swfobject) can include means to update... such as swfobject express install.
or Google "swfobject expressinstall" for more info.
But a word of caution... if you spend even a couple days in this Forum, you see that always installing the "latest and greatest" version of anything, does not always mean "best and less trouble free".
The original post was edited, which asked about making firefox update firefox, not flash.
Anyhow as mentioned, when exporting with the HTML template enabled it will output a template that asks the user to update their flash version to at least the version you target. So if you target 11.2 (by manually adding in 11.2 support to Flash now that it's out) then it will warn the user and provide a button to press to update their flash player automatically for you.
However if you really don't use Stage3D, StageVideo or any other technology required by those players you should always target the lowest version of flash necessary so your audience isn't needlessly told to update. It's a hassle.
