It will update like clockwork without any effort from you as we roll out changes to all of our users.
Of course, if you want to be the very first to have an update, you can always check on your own, and configure your settings to check for updates.
In the past, you would have to take an action — either download the new version of select “Update” from your Firefox menu to initiate an update.

Firefox typically automatically checks for add-on updates after the browser itself is updated. If a Plugin is outdated or vulnerable, it will be listed at the top with an Update Now button to the right side of the page next to it.
