My auto-update has been working fine until now. I am on Windows 8.1 with Firefox browser. Auto-update and Secunia both signaled need for an update, but the auto-update download failed twice. When I searched for the appropriate download I did not see it. My program files show I have JRE 1.8.0_66 installed 12-3-15.

My Secunia score is down just due to the Java. I have the 32 and 64 bit. Windows is 64, and Firefox is still 32.

I'd appreciate suggestions about what I need to do.

The latest Java is 71 rather than the 66 you appear to have installed.
