Firefox is no longer compatible with certain sites (eg my digital banking) when I have previously had no problems.
Some websites which I have accessed without problems will no longer work with Firefox. My digital banking site says that I should have Firefox 2.0 (at least) & I have 3.6.8 installed. My Yahoo mail will not open in the new version - again it suggests Firefox 2.0 or above.

Your UserAgent string in Firefox is messed up by another program that you installed, and your bank doesn't know which version of Firefox you are running. It sees it as Firefox 979802487603 . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_Agent
type about:config in the URL bar and hit Enter If you see the warning, you can confirm that you want to access that page. Filter = general.useragent. Right-click the preferences that are bold, one line at a time, and select Reset, Then restart Firefox
