I got an invite to Google Plus. When I went to the site, it said my Firefox was out of date and needed updating. So I did, to 5.0.1 Even my "about Firefox" says it's up to date. However, when I got to Google Plus it still says it's out of date and when I go to the Mozilla Firefox page it too says it needs updating.

Right-click the preferences that are bold, one line at a time, and select Reset.
Then restart Firefox

Thank you! Worked like a charm, even though I thought I was never going to get through all that was to be reset.
