Hello Phil89p, when you update firefox does not have to uninstall the previous version in your win 7

you are in the latest stable version 24.0, see your user agent :

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0

can you share the link requesting to update firefox ?

or try to create a screenshot, please see How do I create a screenshot of my problem?

Once you've done this, attach the saved screenshot file to your forum post by clicking the Browse... button below the Post your reply box.

Thank you!
