When visiting various sites (including Firefox.com), I am told to upgrade my browser. However, I am using the latest browser from Firefox (6.0). There must be some information that the websites are not able to collect correctly from my browser, but I have no idea what it could be. I am accepting all third party cookies and such.

Something is interfering with your user agent string which is showing Fx 3.0.11. It also has ffco7 which I'm not familiar with.

Someone will come by to help you with that. In the meantime you could do some troubleshooting(Safe Mode, Problematic extensions etc) - in Default theme -

Than you Alan. It is interesting that they system believes I am using Fx 3.0.11. Interesting that this was not fixed when I upgraded Firefox to 6.0. Perhaps doing a complete uninstall is the only option.

That probably won't help unless you abandon all your add-ons and preferences. Did you try the troubleshooting?

Can anyone help on your ffco7?
