ive updated firefox over and over, and its up to 32.0.3 right now but whenever i go to a website it tells me im using a older version of firefox and to update. also like the themes add on wont work because of this. ive uninstalled and downloaded again but still nothing. i even downloaded an older version then upgraded that and still nothing. the themes keep telling me to update to 30.0.16 or something close to that. imma try and download a Canada version and see if that could work. please help. :)

hello timothykelley8, your useragent (the information the browser sends to websites to identify its version) - apparently mistakenly - shows you're on firefox version 3. probably some sort of toolbar or adware has overwritten it. please refer to this article in order to reset the user-agent settings in firefox: Websites say that Firefox is outdated or incompatible even though it's the latest version

Your useragent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.0.19) Gecko/2010031422 Firefox/3.0.19 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) FBSMTWB

It was likely the FBSMTWB that was added to UA that frozed it at 3.0.19. The FBSMTWB is related to the Fast Browser Search toolbar extension you had installed in Firefox at time.

Firefox since 4.0 version does not allow anything to be added to UA ever since.
