I was sent a alert from secunia software inspector stating for me to scan my computer for a catagory 4 threat on mozilla firefox. I scanned it to update the patch, and rescaned it but did not update. I was advised to bring my problem to this forum

Is there anyone who has a solution to this problem?

I do not use Firefox but the latest version appears to be 3.0.5 and can be downloaded from here:

I just had the same update request but the newest version is 3.5.7 and that's what I have on my machine. Why won't the alert go away?

Using PSI (in advanced mode) will give you information as to what OSI is detecting as the "out of date" Firefox .

Having version 3.5.7 installed , old files may be around somewhere .

You can find the PSI download by using the "Vulnerability Scanning" link at the top of this page.

@philip.maxfield

These are some tips on using PSI :-

As a new member of the forum , to help resolve your problem , here are some instructions to help you first of all get the best out of PSI :-

1)use PSI in "advanced" mode ;
2)in the "settings" tab make sure that the box in the first/upper section is NOT ticked in order to have the maximum info available ;
3)tell us in which "tab(s)" your problem programme is located ;
4)in that tab , click on the + in the box at the left end of the programme , the page will expand ;
5)in the expanded page , tell us what is written in the "installation path" ;
6)in the "toolbox" section , lower down , the link "technical details" should confirm the installation path details ;
7)click on the link "open folder" and you will see more details concerning the location of the "problem" .

Posting these details will help the Forum help you , if/when you have a problem .

Let us know how you get on

Take care
Anthony
