There are several websites and online services that are becoming an issue or are unusable for me because I don't have the most current version of Firefox. But I've tried to update it and cannot. I go to the "Help" pull-down menu, and the "Check For Updates" option is grayed out and un-selectable. Please help!

A) That would be annoying B) It would give the impression that the problem was solved.

Just once or twice

I have upgraded to to Firefox 8.0.1 but a number of sites including Googmail think I have an old version. On this site I get warnings about having 3.6 which is about to have its support discontinued but I stopped using 3.6 years ago.

Opening the "educated guesses" section below it thinks i have Firefox 3.5.7 and Windows XP when I actually have Firefox 8.0.1 and Windows 7. Hmmmm :)

Hi. I wish to submit feedback, so I click "help" then "Submit feedback".

I get directed to a page:

Oh! So, you want to offer us feedback on Firefox. Thank you, but you'll need to be on the latest version.

To do that, simply go to our download page and install/update to the latest version of Firefox!

But:

Firefox 4.0.1 Firefox is up to date

I can not submit feedback unless I update a copy of fire fox that is "UP TO DATE!".

Within five minutes of opening gmail, I receive a notice that i need to upgrade as gmail is not supported by the older version of Firefox. It also declares that gmail may not run properly without the upgrade. After five unsuccessful upgrade attempts, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled the latest version as it was shown by Mozilla. All looked well for no more than five minutes when the warning reappeared. This is very irritating and worrisome as I need this laptop for my daily business duties. What next?

I am a website designer. I have on my computer Linux's Krusader file manager, with which I am able to copy files to my web host's server. Normally, when I do this, the page appearing on Firefox accurately reflects a change I have made and copied to the web host's server. Lately, the page showing on Firefox is only the old page, without the change; and my clearing the cache, exiting Firefox and coming back in has made no difference.
