Browser check claims version is older than what is installed

Posted

The problem is that when certain sites auto detect what browser I am running they seem to think I am running an older version of Firefox, and thus disable some functionality and/or tell me to update. I have noticed this problem with gmail, google+, deviantart, and even the mozilla update page. The mozilla page claimed I was running version 3.6

I have updated to the newest version. I have tried clearing out my cookies and cache. I have tried a clean uninstall and reinstall of firefox. So far, I have found no solution. Any help would be appreciated.
