Upgrade will not work and I can't use my email because of it
For a few months now I get a message saying I need to upgrade my Mozilla browser. When I go to my email (live account through hotmail) it says I need to upgrade my browser. So I have tried several times to do this with no luck. It's getting pretty old having to look at email on a kindle or phone, I can look at it on IE but I have other user accounts so I have to log in and out all the time on there.
That fixed my problem, thank you very much!Read this answer in context 0

I have downloaded the upgrade several times and did the install the standard way (click on it and run it.) Maybe there is some other way I need to do this, but I dont know what it is.
I thought about uninstalling firefox, but am afraid I will lose all my bookmarks, and my fiancee has some very important bookmarks that I do not want to lose by doing this.
Hello scwerl3, your user agent is corrupted by Fast Browser Search (FBSMTWB) and that identifies you as Firefox/3.6.16
see your user agent:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20110319 Firefox/3.6.16 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0C) FBSMTWB
you must reset user agent, see how to do that : Firefox is showing the wrong User Agent
