Firefox is up to date
The current browser version is 64 not 63
Firefox 64.0 has been the current Release since December 11, 2018.
You appear to be using a 63.0.x version according to your More System Details by your post.
What you do need to update though, is Adobe Flash Player .....
Your system details show that you're running an older version, which can cause problems. Would you please uninstall your current version and install the latest version, which is 22.214.171.124
Note : some 'extras' may be offered in the download.

To distinguish between fake messages from web pages and messages from Firefox or an add-on, you can test using zoom: hold down the Ctrl key and tap + a few times. The page content should enlarge. If the notification enlarges, it is part of the page and not part of Firefox's interface. (Hold down Ctrl and tap 0 to reset the zoom level, or click the 120% button -- or whatever it says -- in the address bar.)
You can check via "Help -> About Firefox" if there is an update available.
Many thanks to everyone!
