I updated to Firefox 5, under the help button in the browser "about Firefox" shows the new version, but my shortcut buttons on my monitor still show "Firefox 4.0 Beta 10". Most updates also update the shortcut buttons. Is there a way I can do this?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Your user-agent indicates that you are using Firefox 5. You could change the name of the shortcut to read just "Firefox". You can name a shortcut anything you want.

Right-click that desktop shortcut and select Rename.

In my case, "about" does not indicate that I have 5.0. It shows 4.0.1, and also Yahoo Firefox 1.7.

I just updated to Firefox 5. About Firefox shows me no version number at all. I had to look at Help > Troubleshooting Information to see the version number.

Update: I saw the version number after changing themes. I guess it depends on what theme you use.
