When I go into Firefox, it keeps telling me, URGENT, my version of Firefox is no longer protected against online attacks. I then try to upgrade to version 4.0.1 which is there for me to click on, but I keep getting pop up with options of store file or cancel. I don't really know what version I have of Fire Fox, but figure if its telling me I need to up grade and not secure I need to do something. Thank You.

Why aren't Firefox system requirements and release information made readily available via links on the main Firefox pages? I can find them easily enough via Google, but I wonder why they cannot be found from within mozilla.com. Even a search in "Firefox Help" with the string "firefox 6 requirements" doesn't find the information. Is it an oversight, the community is too busy, or is it assumed that such information is not relevant in this day and age?

Why would I want to install the new Firefox if it will disable my antivirus software?

It says it will disable my antivirus. And then it doesn't give youo an option to not install. It just keeps bugging you to install it. Try fixing it before you release it… (read more)
