Re: download complete binery file executed but still showing old version of start page

If you have install 9.0.1 version, you have useragent problem, because your useragent tell us that you have 3.5.5 version (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.1.5) Gecko/20091102 Firefox/3.5.5 ).

check the version in Help then About firefox, if you have 9.0.1 see how to fix user agent: in Websites or add-ons incorrectly report incompatible browser find Reset your user agent and follow the steps.


thank you

Thank you so much for your reply and I followed your instructions as detailed, I still have a problem, I have copied the useragent field as I think something is not right but I don't know what to replace it with:

general.useragent.compatMode.firefox;false general.useragent.locale;en-GB I have checked the version of Firefox for XP and that is showing 9.0.1 as being current but I am still getting the message on my main home page as follows:

You're not on the latest version of Firefox. Upgrade today to get the best of the Web!

About Mozilla - Firefox Support What do I need to change , becasue i'm sure it's something to do with the user agent?
