I currently have version 3.6 and i keep going to the site and downloading the newest version (7.01). The install works perfectly but when I launch Firefox, it's still version 3.6. I've tried this about 5 times and nothing works.

Like the question said, Firefox is not updating even when I download and install the updates. It works perfectly, but it's simply not updating. I've been stuck with 3.6. each time i launch the browser after a successful install.

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.
Filter = general.useragent.
Right-click the preferences that are bold, one line at a time, and select Reset.
Then restart Firefox

Thank you! That worked. Now it says that i'm running version 7. I don't notice much of a physical change but as long as it says i'm running version 7, that's what matters.
