For the past several weeks, when I've attempted to download the latest version, I get the same version (v43.0.1). I'd like to be able to download the latest version and virus scan it before I commit to installing it. When are you going to fix your website?

You can use current versions of Firefox.

The 43.0.1 is served on mozill.org to WinXP/Vista users (which users can update from) because many Windows XP and Vista users cannot install Firefox from 43.0.2 and newer setups .exe as it is signed by a SHA-256. It is not possible to tell by browser useragent if a WinXP user has SP2 or the needed SP3 installed on OS.
