I have tried updating several times and always get this response. Control panel uninstall shows me I have the latest level installed. Have deleted quickstarts etc.

Hi grushy,

Looking at your system details, you are on 8.0.1. Where is it telling you that you need to update? Is it on the Google/Firefox page? If that's the case, I found this post by cor-el that explains what is going on:

"That text about not running the latest Firefox version is hard-coded on the www.google.com/firefox site that previous Firefox used as the home page and Google doesn't seem to maintain that page anymore. Current Firefox versions no longer use that Google site as the home page, but use the build-in about:home page as the home page. So Google assumes that you use an older Firefox version if you still visit that site and warns you about that and suggests to update. You can use another page as the home page like about:home or www.google.com or www.google.com/ig (iGoogle)."
