I follow the exact instructions for installing the latest version and yet when I open it up I am still told that I do not have the latest version. I have done this 10 times.

I down load the latest version drag it into applications and then to the dock saying replace the older version and when I open Firefox the next time it says I have the older version. I have dragged the older version into my trash but it keeps coming back. please advise.

Do you see that message on the www.google.com/firefox site?

The www.google.com/firefox site was used in Firefox 3 versions for the home 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 no longer seems to maintain that page and 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).
