Firefox latest version (7.0.1) is detected as outdated

more options

Whenever a web site attempts to detect what version of Firefox I'm using, it seems to believe I'm using an older version. The thing is, I always keep it up to date. Even Mozilla's feedback tool at input.mozilla.com says:


  • "Oh! So, you want to offer us feedback on Firefox. Thank you, but you'll need to be on the latest version. To do that, simply go to our download page and install/update to the latest version of Firefox!"


I just tried to manually update by downloading the 7.0.1 installer and running it. The problem still exists. I use Firefox 7.0.1 on Windows 7 64-bit.
