Yea, I don't get why people don't update. 99.99% (Ok, I haven't seen that many). ALL of the machines I've seen with virus type problems were way out of date. Another couple I know are low bandwidth so only update sporadically (but they do update so they haven't had problems).
Anyway, sane or not, I don't think all of the people will update as quickly as we'd like :( And the list's thrown out #s like 5-10 years for a transition, so it seems like we recognize that as well.

If they are on Firefox 3 or above, it should update itself, unless someone has disabled that.
In Firefox 3.5, at least, the pref is:
Edit | Preferences | Advanced | Update tab Check all three "automatically check for updates" boxes and select "Automatically download and install the update".
(I would do the same for an IE user :-) )
