I have the last version of firefox (10.0.2) on Mac OS 10.7.3 but often i receive this message: "your browser is outdated". Recently, i noticed that google analytics reference my visit on my own website in "browser stat" as Firefox 3.5.5. Any suggestion?

Question owner

Indeed, the useragent showed version 3.5.5 when typing "about:support" in the adress bar of the navigator:

general.useragent.override Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; fr; rv:1.9.1.5) Gecko/20091102 Firefox/3.5.5 FBSMTWB

So i reseted the preference as suggested:

   Reset general user-agent
       type about:config in the URL/address bar and press the Enter key
       if you see the warning, accept it (promise to be careful)
       Filter = general.useragent
       items in bold and that indicate user set; right-click that preference and select Reset
       restart Firefox (File > Restart Firefox)

And now it seems that it works as the user agent tured to : Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:10.0.2) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.2

Thanks a lot!
