I've updated to 40 for Mac and still keep getting the window telling me to update to 40.

Posted

The window pops up whenever I open Firefox and at random intervals. It is bothersome to have to keep closing it. I've updated both through the pop up window and through "about Firefox" over 4 times and the pop up still keeps happening. "About Firefox" says it is 40.0.

Firefox 39.0 is still the current Release on www.mozilla.org/firefox/all since July 2.

Firefox 40.0 is still on the Beta channel with 40.0b6 being the recent build. There can be six to twelve Beta builds for a version on Beta channel.

I trust that you are aware that Firefox 40.0 is the current Beta version, and that Beta gets 1 or 2 updates per week until the RC stage.
