Your User Agent string shows that you are using Firefox 3.5.5. That's way older. The latest version is Firefox 7.

Perform the steps mentioned in Reset Your User Agent section in How to reset the default user agent on Firefox

Check and tell if its working.

i performed the steps you mentioned. it says (and has said since the first time i tried updating) that i am running 7.0. things seem to be fine. pandora is working and when visiting mozilla it doesnt prompt me to update to newer version.

i was just wondering why i wasn't prompted earlier than that. 4 version behind seems like a lot!

thank you for your help.
