Firefox Trouble Shooting

Wed Sep 16, 2009 2:21 pm

I have been having an ongoing issue with Firefox that I cannot seem to resolve. I have downloaded the latest version and stayed current with all the updates (currently running 3.5.3).

However, when I go to certain web sites, I will get an error page saying that I need to update my browser to a newer version, 2.0 or higher. I recently installed the latest Flash plugin, however flash sites tell me that I still need to update!

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, and for some reason the problem persists... I have the newest version and the updated plugins but the web sites keep telling me the version I am running is too old, so I have to use Internet Explorer.

How can I fix this problem?

Did the problems start after you upgraded...? I'm still running Firefox 3.0

I had smilar problems when I upgraded to the new FF and it was so annoying that I am using this browser now:

It is excellent, very fast and a perfect pop- up blocker.

I cannot help you with your FF problems, just point you to an excellent browser.

With my latest Firefox update it told me I should download the latest Adobe Flash plugin immediately due to some conflicts with the older plugin.

So, try updating your Flash plugin and see if it fixes your issues.

The issue has been going on for months... its frankly very confusing. This is on my Lenovo Windows XP laptop at work, the Firefox I run on my Macbook Pro at home has no such issues.

I did upgrade my flash plugin, and then I went to a site that immediately said that I needed the newest version... the one that I just installed.
