The following shows versions, their current channel, and the approximate date that the version will move into the next channel. It also shows past Releases and their release dates. This page is kept current, so it may be a good reference source for you.

You are using an old version of Firefox 16 which has security issues. Current version is Firefox 18.0.1.

Your Plugins should be checked and updated:

  1. Check your Plugins - https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/
  2. Next Generation Java Plug-in 1.6.0_37 for Mozilla browsers (Current version is 1.6.0_38; support for 1.6 versions will end in February 2013. Newest version available is 1.7.0_11)
  3. Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape "9.5.2" (Version 9.5.3 is latest 9x version. Newest version is 11.0.01)
