Why can't I get Firefox 9 to install on my desktop after 3 tries?

I have downloaded this twice and tried to install it three times, but each time I try to go to the new version, various websites including yours say I'm using the old version. What is the problem?

You have a user agent that is corrupted by Fast Browser Search (FBSMTWB in the user agent) and that identifies you as Firefox/3.5.7

  • Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.7) Gecko/20091221 Firefox/3.5.7 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) FBSMTWB
