Applications, including Firefox and Pandora, do not recognize that I have updated to v 9.0.1 of Firefox, even thought I ahve updated to it twice. What can I do to have other applications recognize I am using Firefox 9.0.1?

Applications, including Firefox and Pandora, do not recognize that I have updated to v 9.0.1 of Firefox, even thought I ahve updated to it twice. What can I do to have other applications recognize I am using Firefox 9.0.1?

I have updated to Firefox 9.0.1 on two occasions. I am still receiving messages from Firefox and Mozilla among others requesting me to upgrade to the latest version of Firefox in order for my system to function. When I do a Help>About Firefox, it shows that I am using version 9.0.1. What additional steps are required in order for other applications, including Firefox, to recognize that I am using version 9.0.1? Thanks. Rory

Your user agent is corrupted by Fast Browser Search (FBSMTWB) and that identifies you as Firefox/3.5.7

see your user agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.7) Gecko/20091221 Firefox/3.5.7 FBSMTWB

reset user agent as mha007 reply above
