I'm running Windows XP Home SP3. When I check for updates, I'm offered FF 5, not FF7. If I DL and run FF 7.0.1, will I be given the option NOT to overwrite my existing FF 3.6.23? Thanks. Bender

I cannot find any option (in the 'File' tab), to send a website link to my wallpaper directly. On IE in the drop down 'File' menu tab, it has an option to 'Send' as an email, OR 'Send' to your desktop as a Shortcut.. Mozilla does not have that option. I do not understand why you do not have that simple option? The Drop down 'File' in Mozilla only allows you to send the link as an email. I always have to copy and paste a link from Mozilla to my IE browser to be able to send a link as a Shortcut to my wall paper.

The problem is that when certain sites auto detect what browser I am running they seem to think I am running an older version of Firefox, and thus disable some functionality and/or tell me to update. I have noticed this problem with gmail, google+, deviantart, and even the mozilla update page. The mozilla page claimed I was running version 3.6

I have updated to the newest version. I have tried clearing out my cookies and cache. I have tried a clean uninstall and reinstall of firefox. So far, I have found no solution. Any help would be appreciated.

Although I have the latest version of Firefox installed, I'm constantly getting the warning message that I AM USING THE OLD VERSION; what could be the issue here?

I usually upgrade Firefox within a couple of days when the new version is issued. Nevertheless, I can't seem to get it right. Although when I check "About Firefox" tab in the Help menu it says that my version is 9.0.1 (i.e. the latest version available) - still on the Firefox Update page I always get this annoying msg: "Hey there! Looks like you’re using an old version of Firefox. Don’t miss out on the latest technology & security features. Get the free upgrade in less than a minute." And, I see that your "educated guess" about my browser recognises it as a 3.5.5 version (far being it from the truth!). I don't believe that the fact that I'm still using Windows XP should have anything to do with this problem, but fyi - my OS is Win XP SP3, regularly updated and upgraded. Also, even though I live in Croatia, I prefer my Firefox (and other programs) in English, so I use UK version of Firefox. I do have some problems updating MS .Net Framework - could this be the issue with Firefox too? Anyway, I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, even tried installing Croatian version - nothing helped. As a result of this, I also have a problem with Gmail - I can only use standard, basic HTML view. Also annoying as hell. Btw, as for "Installed plugins" - I'm not sure which of those are right, but I do not have Netscape installed, and never had one on this computer. I even ran the search for term "Netscape" and it came out empty. There, I think I've provided as much information as I could think of - so, please help me to sort this out - if you can. Thanks

My Firefox doesn't recognize it being upgraded. It still thinks that its version is 3.5 even though I've been updating and upgrading it regularly, and now have v9.0.1. installed. Why does this happen?

I've tried everything possible to sort this out myself. Nothing helps. Installing, reinstalling, upgrading... (even disabling all the add-ons) ...my Firefox still believes that it hasn't been updated since v 3.5.5 (even though in About Firefox the version states to be 9.0.1). Here is the picture evidence of the problem: Picture showing Firefox version in Help menu as opposed to version recognised here

Please help, this is a major issue for me. I really like Firefox and I'd hate to be forced to install some other browser. Thanks for any help solving this issue.

I have the last version of firefox (10.0.2) on Mac OS 10.7.3 but often i receive this message: "your browser is outdated". Recently, i noticed that google analytics reference my visit on my own website in "browser stat" as Firefox 3.5.5. Any suggestion?

Also i use the last version of firefox, i receive sometimes the message that it is out of date. Google recognize my browser as version 3.5.5
