Why, when I try to upgrade to 8.0.1, do I still end up with the same version, and a message that says "You're not on the latest version of Firefox. Upgrade today to get the best of the Web!"?

Yesterday I tried to upgrade to 8.0.1 twice. Both times the upgrade process seemed to be working. I downloaded files, clicked on install, it told me it's "housekeeping" … (read more)

Yesterday I tried to upgrade to 8.0.1 twice. Both times the upgrade process seemed to be working. I downloaded files, clicked on install, it told me it's "housekeeping" (removing the old version?), but in the end, I'm still running the same older version.

I upgraded at home on my laptop, no problem.

I turn on my laptop and my Mozilla start page comes up. It tells me I am not on the latest version of Firefox so I download and run the latest version. I finish whatever I am doing and shutdown. When I restart also always it tells me the same thing - even on the same day. I check my downloads and that tells me that I have the latest version. I don't understand and find it a little bit frustrating.

    Your help would be appreciated.

I think I have asked the question as best I can. On Internet Explorer, I could click on the lower right and change from 100% to 150%.

Given my eyesight, this change would be enormously helpful.
