firefox preferences using latest version. Firefox homepage says need to upgrade to latest version?

Posted

Do I in fact have the latest version of Firefox? And if so, why does my homepage say I need to upgrade?

Do you see that message on the www.google.com/firefox site?
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 ignore that message if you run the latest Firefox version as reported in the "Help > About" window (Firefox is up to date).
You can use another page as the home page like about:home or www.google.com or www.google.com/ig (iGoogle).
