Hi! After seeing repeated nag msgs from youtube etc informing me I was using an out of date browser, I downloaded v 3.6 from mozilla website. I ran the program... it did 'a little housekeeping' and updated my FF, or so I thought... fast forward a couple of months later and I'm still seeing the nag msgs. Turns out my firefox didnt update! So in desperation I uninstalled FF completely, then installed v3.6. What a surprise... I'm still on FF2.02!!! It's getting to the stage now where despite my love for FF I am going to have to stop using it and switch to a browser that actually updates properly so I can protect myself from the current swathe of ridiculous popups etc. Anyone have any ideas on how I can update my FF to something relevant to this decade? :D

This happened

A few times a week

== I started getting nag msgs from youtube that my browser was out of date

This part of the user agent shows that you have Firefox 3.6.3: rv:1.9.2.3 Gecko/20100401

You can check the general.useragent prefs on the about:config page. You can open the about:config page via the location bar, just like you open a website. Filter: general.useragent If general.useragent prefs are bold (user set) then you can right-click that pref and choose Reset.

Thanks very much for a prompt reply, this has now sorted the problem. Had no idea this support forum even existed before yesterday, it's really impressive! Other browsers should take note :)
