Which is the Latest Firefox Version? 3.6.12 or 3.6.2?
I am a firefox lover, and i always spread the word, may it be friends or family, simply everywhere! And, I always like to use the latest versions, but right now ther is a CONFUSION, I have upgraded to latest Firefox 3.6.12 through Mozilla's Download, but I just updated an addon SkipScreen, which have changed my firefox to Version 3.6.2. But on the firefox download page, I still see the Version 3.6.12.

Your UserAgent in More system details... also shows the date 20100316 for the Firefox 3.6.2 release, not 20101026 the date of 3.6.12 . You need to reset those preferences.
type about:config in the URL bar and hit Enter
If you see the warning, you can confirm that you want to access that page.
Filter = general.useragent.
Right-click the preferences that are bold, one line at a time, and select Reset.
Then restart Firefox
Which version do you see at the top of the Help > About Mozilla Firefox window?
If you have the Firefox 3.6.2 version then check if you have only one Firefox version installed by doing a search for the firefox.exe program.
If you no longer have the Firefox 3.6.12 version then you need to reinstall that version or update via Help > Check for Updates.
@the-edmeis... This is simply changing the version in the config, but this doesn't changes the Actual Version.
@cor-el Yes it shows 3.6.2 and Updater says that a newer version 3.6.12 is available!
Can you please tell me HOW is it possible that SkipScreen is distributing a NEWER version which Mozilla isn't?

If SkipScreen is an extension (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) then such a change isn't possible.
Did you check that you have only one Firefox version installed and that you didn't switch to that older version ?
Make sure that if you update that you have the required Administrator rights to update files in the "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\" program folder. Otherwise the update might end up in the VirtualStore folder and in that case it wont' work properly.
See SkipScreen says that it should run a different setup, CLOsing firefox. When Installing SkipScreen, i saw it was downloading Firefox 3.6.2 files, as it said! And yes, the version was changed, but then I checked out firefox's official site, it said Upgrade to 3.6.12.
yes I am very sure that I am not switching to any older version, but the addon has changed my version to a NEW version according to them!
But, its quite shocking when I see my version 3.6.2 as old over 3.6.12.
Shallit not be given a check as the Addon is being distributed in Mozilla Addons Gallery.
Anyways, I would like to mention that, I have changed back now to Firefox 3.6.12.
