Having downloaded every version of Firefox since it was first installed, the updates never show, system acts as if it was 3.0, not 29.0.

I have never been able to get the updated Firefox version to read, so I am on AOL Basic Mail, because they don't support the old version, which has been replaced and updated 30 times, if not more. I need to get this to show in my system and I have not been able to get it to happen. Is there an override or something that I need to do when I update, because the system doesn't want to do it.

Wow, haven't seen one of these problems in a while!

Your useragent is stuck at 3.6.16 due to a extension which added stuff to UA at time. Firefox 4.0 and newer UA's are not affected this way.

The user agent is corrupted by Fast Browser Search (FBSMTWB) and that identifies you as Firefox/3.6.17

This is like a whole different world ... I get to use the Big-boy mail instead of Basic. Going to have to get used to it. Thanks for the immediate help. Much appreciated.
