Hello Why is it that every time I open Firefox, I get a message asking me to update? If this persists, I may need to use another browser. I keep pressing the "download" button for the upgrade but nothing happens. Could this be the issue? Please help as I do not want to change my browser. What have I done wrong that the upgrade is not happening automatically? Thanks

Your User Agent shows you are using the current Firefox version. Note: v95 just came out yesterday. But this would not cause the update message from anyone.


Whenever you get a message / popup that software / files need to be updated;

DO NOT USE ANY OF PROVIDED LINKS

While this may be a legitimate message, it could also be Malware or a Virus. Anytime you want or need to check for upgrades, go to the website of the True Owner of the program in question. For example, to check out Firefox, go to https://www.mozilla.org


You can report such a site at; http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/report_phish/ Google Report Phishing Page which is the same when done while on site by going to Help > Report Web Forgery

Do you have enabled "Resist Fingerprinting" if you check ‘’’Resist Fingerprinting’’’ on the ‘’’about:config’’’ page as this affects the user agent?


’’’Avast AntiTrack’’’ is also known to cause this issue.
