I am getting the "urgent/out of date" notification. However, I have downloaded the "newer version" many times but it does not take. Why?

Your UserAgent string in Firefox is probably messed up by another program that you installed.

type about:config in the URL bar and hit Enter
If you see the warning, you can confirm that you want to access that page.

According to this you use Firefox 3.0.19, which is indeed out of date.

You can install the newer Firefox by downloading it from the Firefox download page:

HI, Thanks for the information. I am a bit nervous about the method because I get a "serious" warning when I put the command in the URL. Also, I wonder if you know the answer to this: Someone/Firefox pushed an upload tab to me. That is the best way I can explain what happened. Now, sometimes I get an ! in a triangle, sometimes I get an outdated message with the Firefox logo in place of the ! and sometimes it does not show an icon indicating the program is out of date. When I belly up to the URL and do the commands you mentioned, do you know if all these glitchy things will be taken care of? dmer
