3.Error Prompt(each individual malformed file) ok button to acknowledge

Actual Results:  
same errors

Expected Results:  
updated itself properly

this has been ongoing since the first install of mozilla firefox please address these issues

That error string belongs to the updater for extensions rather than the browser, so I'm moving this bug to the right component of bugzilla. It's probably just a problem with one (or more) extensions you have installed though.
Component: Software Update → Extension/Theme Manager

Does this occur with Firefox 1.5?
Version: unspecified → 1.0 Branch

Fire Fox ver is 1.0.7 as stated below, under description (top)

I have scripting enabled in internet explorer and popup blocker enabled I am going to try to disable these and all other unneeded tsr's within the tray to see if there isn't the posibility of some other program interfering with the update process..

Should there be a positive result I will post success if not the problem remains.
This is WFM with 1.5 - please test with Forefox 1.5 since this will not be fixed in the 1.0.x codebase
