Also, when I logged into my guest account, that firefox was fully updated, so I don't know why my account hasn't updated! All that has changed is the tab and url bar. When I go to the Mozilla homepage, it has the same search engine thing, and undernaeth advertises the pro's of having this upgrade. What's going on????

You appear to be up-to-date in that your 'More system details' is showing as 4.0.1 with apparently the correct User Agent string.

What is the home page you are talking about and the advertised features:

paste the url from the location bar or a link into your message.

I do not use Windows 7, but maybe some of your accounts do not have correct privileges for upgrading, and maybe your differing accounts have different add-ons installed.


Possibly some of the customisations or extensions are hiding some features, for instance I note you have bing bar listed.

Check the versions of Firefox in each user account you have on Windows 7 using

  • Firefox button -> Help -> About Firefox
  • note possibly you may need to restart for changes to take effect

If all your accounts are up-to-date and you still get warnings to upgrade firefox look at :
