Although I have the latest version of Firefox installed, I'm constantly getting the warning message that I AM USING THE OLD VERSION; what could be the issue here?

I usually upgrade Firefox within a couple of days when the new version is issued. Nevertheless, I can't seem to get it right. Although when I check "About Firefox" tab in the Help menu it says that my version is 9.0.1 (i.e. the latest version available) - still on the Firefox Update page I always get this annoying msg: "Hey there! Looks like you’re using an old version of Firefox. Don’t miss out on the latest technology & security features. Get the free upgrade in less than a minute." And, I see that your "educated guess" about my browser recognises it as a 3.5.5 version (far being it from the truth!). I don't believe that the fact that I'm still using Windows XP should have anything to do with this problem, but fyi - my OS is Win XP SP3, regularly updated and upgraded. Also, even though I live in Croatia, I prefer my Firefox (and other programs) in English, so I use UK version of Firefox. I do have some problems updating MS .Net Framework - could this be the issue with Firefox too? Anyway, I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, even tried installing Croatian version - nothing helped. As a result of this, I also have a problem with Gmail - I can only use standard, basic HTML view. Also annoying as hell. Btw, as for "Installed plugins" - I'm not sure which of those are right, but I do not have Netscape installed, and never had one on this computer. I even ran the search for term "Netscape" and it came out empty. There, I think I've provided as much information as I could think of - so, please help me to sort this out - if you can. Thanks

I recently upgraded from 16.0.2 to 17.0. The fonts used by firefox in the toolbar and the names on the tabs have changed to a dirty, bold look. I do not like it. In 16.0.2 I am using the default theme. In 17.0 I am also using the default theme of 17.0. I am running Windows 7. Since my home and work machines have similar configurations, the work version (still 16.0.2) has the nicer looking fonts. If this antiquated system allowed one to attach screen shots, I could visually show the difference brought about by the upgrade to 17.0

How do I get back the application fonts that were used in 16.0.2?

I am running mac os x version 10.7.4 and I was attempting to update from Firefox version 3.5.5 to the latest version. The Firefox icon in my doc still persists and leads me to the old version of Firefox. Is this supposed to happen?

Downloaded Firefox 14.0.1. Would not install. Got message: "This version of Firefox requires Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or newer."

I have dial-up and it took an hour to load, now it won't install. Very frustrating, particularly as I have Windows XP. Why won't it load?

Thank you.

firefox prevented this page from auto redirecting to another page I get this message every time I go to new search page. I am so F-ING tired of pressing the key allow it's not funny. Can't Fire fox remember the dam pages I go to? Every freaking time I go to a new page that props up and I have to click allow. I would like to get rid of that for good so if you can help me that's cool if not then good bye. I go to explorer for browser. I can't take it anymore. Plus when I'm reading that page moves up again and I have to click allow again.
