I have an Acer one notebook with OS Linux Linpus. Firefox is delivered in version 2.0.0.3. I can find a way to unpgrade to version 3.6, downloading does not work (won't install). Add-ons give problems etc., so I cannot browse properly. When using Firefox for the first time (after reinstallation of the OS) I get no connection to http://nl.www.mozilla.com/nl/firefox/2.0.0.14/firstrun/ So i'm stuck.

Hi! After seeing repeated nag msgs from youtube etc informing me I was using an out of date browser, I downloaded v 3.6 from mozilla website. I ran the program... it did 'a little housekeeping' and updated my FF, or so I thought... fast forward a couple of months later and I'm still seeing the nag msgs. Turns out my firefox didnt update! So in desperation I uninstalled FF completely, then installed v3.6. What a surprise... I'm still on FF2.02!!! It's getting to the stage now where despite my love for FF I am going to have to stop using it and switch to a browser that actually updates properly so I can protect myself from the current swathe of ridiculous popups etc. Anyone have any ideas on how I can update my FF to something relevant to this decade? :D

This happened

A few times a week

== I started getting nag msgs from youtube that my browser was out of date

The Firefox 3.6 download is instead installing version 2.0.0.14

I am attempting to install the latest version of Firefox 3.6 from this site: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ using the Firefox 3.6 Free Download link; however, when the install finishes and Firefox launches, when I go to the Help>About menu to check the current version, the bottom of the window says I have installed "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.8.1.14; .NET CLR 3.0; ffco7) Gecko/20080404 Firefox/2.0.0.14". As you may have noted, that indicates the current version of Firefox is 2.0.0.14 and -not- 3.6.13 (or whatever the most recent version is). Is this just a bad registry entry or other taint from a previous install, or is the file that I am downloading and installing (named "Firefox Setup 3.6.13.exe") not the correct one? If the former, then what steps should I take to troubleshoot/remedy this? If the latter, then is there some way I can get the correct file to install 3.6.13 or the latest version?

Just a little tired of Safari so opened Firefox which I haven't done for a LONG time! The latest upgrade says it is for Mac 10.5 and above. I am assuming I can't upgrade to the latest version but it would be good to upgrade to an earlier version. 3.6? How would I do this?
