I get, You're not on the latest version of Firefox. Upgrade today to get the best of the Web! When I go to the update site it tells me that I have the latest version.

I start the Firefox browser. When the start page displays I get just below the Google search box: You're not on the latest version of Firefox. Upgrade today to get the best of the Web!

Not unusual but when I go to the update site it searches for a minute and then tells me that I have the current version of the software.

If you use the www.google.com/firefox site as home page that previous Firefox 3 versions use as the home page then you can ignore the message about not using the latest Firefox version on that page.
Google no longer seems to maintain that page.
Current Firefox 4+ versions no longer use that Google website as the home page, but use the build-in about:home page as the home page.
Google assumes that you use an older Firefox version if you still visit that site and warns you that you use an older Firefox version and suggests to update.
You can use another page as the home page like about:home or www.google.com or www.google.com/ig (iGoogle).

Sounds good. I've not noticed any other problems but I had already started using About, Update to check. I'll try Google.com for a home page. Thanks.
