You have or had an extension installed (NET_mmhpset) that has changed the user agent from Firefox/3.6.3 to Firefox/3.5.5.

You can check the general.useragent prefs on the about:config page. You can open the about:config page via the location bar, just like you open a website. Filter: general.useragent If general.useragent prefs are bold (user set) then you can right-click that pref and choose Reset.
