I have noticed that Secunia has downloaded and installed the UK version of Firefox for the previous few versions of Firefox, even though I am in the US. Downloading and installing the US version myself corrects it, but just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. It was quickly apparent each time when I went to use the google search bar (which lists some search engine options such as Amazon as UK-and resutled in UK results).

Yes, I've had that happen to me, too.

Normally, I prefer to fetch and install SW updates myself. However, on my partner's old XP laptop, we're still running FF 3.6. Updates for that old release aren't always easy to find on Mozilla's website, especialy lately. So several months ago, I decided to save myself some trouble by letting PSI find and install the update for me. However, after PSI had finished the update, I was quite surprised to discover that we were running the UK version, not the US version.

Yet another reason to prefer manual updates.

Thanks, Esther. This is the only program I've had a problem with with auto-update--I do have them ask me, so next time will simply go and fetch Firefox updates myself.
