I downloaded the latest update on my other machine and now it won't access the net. It has even crippled Internet Explorer, neither one will work. When I try to diagnose it gives some white noise about firewall and HTTP stuff. Since I can't get on the net with my other machine how do I download any fixes?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Last week when I downloaded the latest update

I have the latest version of Firefox (3.6.8) - not a beta version. Many sites I go to tell me that I need to update my browser, and include Firefox as an option. I have checked and rechecked, there IS no further update available! I have cleared my cache. These sites still work, but WHY am I being prompted to update? Hotmail is one of the offenders.

This isn't a problrm! Ty 4 ur patience, but I didn't fount an approriate topic/place/way to ask this thing (to offer an extended usability, being honest) So I have a repetitonal task many times a day: there is a list of keywords (like, my specializations in jobsite) and I must parse manually many web pages to find occurencies of those keywords. This is quite a bumper. To select a word from file, to copy and paste it in special Ctrl+F window in browser, then do it again many times for each new word =( To solve this kind of problem let the browser have a user predetermined list of patterns and new menu shortcut like Ctrl+L: whrn the user hits this shortcut the browser finds all the words (patterns) from that list automatically and flashes them on the page view. And the special button appear "Go next occurence"

Thanks for your patience.

When visiting such sites like youtube, or my eCollege, the site recognizes that my browser is "outdated" and recommends upgrading to Firefox 3. The problem is, I HAVE updated, several times, because I wasn't sure if the update was being installed right. I also tried uninstalling Firefox completely and reinstalling it from the main web page, but each site still says it's outdated. In my program list, Firefox is listed as "3.16," so I'm not sure what's going wrong.

Note: In the box below on the Firefox help page, it's saying I'm using version 2.0 - so even FIREFOX says I'm using the wrong version.

i just installed the latest version of mozilla, 8.0, and for some reason i still get messages on websties saying i'm on an outdated browser. in fact, the version of mozilla currently installed on my desktop, which says is 8.0, looks nothing like the version i have on my laptop, which is 8.0 and for websites don't have an upgrade issue.

i go to pages like youtube, myspace etc and get these 'your browser is outdated' message. i have uninstalled and reinstalled mozilla already (i did this as well when i upgraded to 7.0 a while ago, but nothing changed).

when i click 'help' on the top toolbar and go to 'about firefox' it tells me i'm on version 8.0, but there is no way the version i'm using is beyond 2.0. in fact, some of the add-ons for mozilla will not install because it doesn't see this version of mozilla as compatible with them (those that need to be 5.0 or higher).

can someone help? i'm not sure what to do here. thanks in advance.

here's an image showing the outdated browser message versus what the 'about mozilla' part states.
