It asks me if I want to save a binary code and since I trust Firefox, I say SAVE

But, I did it today, and like yesterday, it will tell me tomorrow I need to upgrade.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Your UserAgent string in Firefox is probably messed up by another program that you installed.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_Agent

type about:config in the URL bar and hit Enter
If you see the warning, you can confirm that you want to access that page.
Filter = general.useragent.
Right-click the preferences that are bold, one line at a time, and select Reset.
Then restart Firefox

I too am having problems with 6.0.2. While waiting for the support area to open for the day my husband asked me if i was having problems. We have three computers on this network so I checked the main, household computer as well. I followed the advice to go to the URL and type; about:config. It immediately brought up a warning that it would void my warranty. That was from HP. My husband had the same thing happen and the household computer as well! We've been using firefox over three years. Never did we have this problem on any other upgrade. I spoke to HP customer support and they recommended changing over to explorer. I know firefox says to ignore this warning but my warranty provider told me not to ignore that warning. We don't want to switch but I need to stay as safe as possible!

That message wasn't from HP, about:config is an internal address inside of Firefox.

See:


To open the about:config page, type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the "Enter" key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website.
If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.

  • Use the Filter bar at to top of the about:config page to locate a preference more easily.
  • Preferences that have been modified show as bold (user set).
  • Preferences can be reset to the default or changed via the right-click context menu.
