We have been using firefox forever and have the autoupdate enabled so help about shows we have 18.0.1 but recently facebook started showing a notice that we need to update on startup today got a page that says the same thing. Is the browser sending a different version number than the current update? or?

hello paul, your useragent (the information the browser sends to websites to identify its version) - apparently mistakenly - shows you're on firefox version 3.5.5. please refer to this article in order to reset the user-agent settings in firefox: Websites say that Firefox is outdated or incompatible even though it's the latest version
