Several sites are showing an update 38.0.6, but, my FF update says that 38.0.5 is the current version. Can someone explain? Thanks

Chosen solution

38.0.6 was a version released to fix a bug in certain 38.0.5 builds (called Funnelcake builds). If Firefox doesn't find an update (and you are running 38.0.5) then you don't need 38.0.6.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.
