The following shows versions, their current channel, and the approximate date that the version will move into the next channel. It also shows past Releases and their release dates. This page is kept current, so it may be a good reference source for you.

You are using an old version of Firefox 16 which has security issues. Current version is Firefox 18.0.1.
