Firefox tells me that I'm up to date but Secunia signals that updates are required.

You may have remnants of an old installation. What path does PSI give you?


FINDING A FILE PATH USING PSI

VERSION 2


From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each programme.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Below DETECTED INSTANCES you will see this You can double click this row for additional information & options>double click it>a box will appear>look to the RIGHT & U will see TROUBLESHOOT REPORT in BLUE writing under the heading TOOLBOX> click TroubleShoot Report & it will reveal some information in a box>highlight the information revealed from ---START--- to ---END--- & copy it (CTRL+C) then post it to the Forum (CTRL+V)

VERSION 3
This version does not have such an easy method to publish the path.

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.
U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.
Right click on the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.
U now have 2 options:
1. Write down the exact file path & install version - return to the Forum & type that information.
2. Take a screen shot & publish that.

Hello Detsi, Maurice Joyce and all,

Maurice post gives a good point to start with.
However if everything shows you are actually still using the old Firefox 15.0.1 you should read the next post on Mozilla's forum;
http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/939116
It seems Mozilla has temporary disabled the automatic update to Firefox 16.0.
You can always download the latest stable Mozilla Firefox from:
http://getfirefox.com

Websafe.

Hi Websafe ,

The link you give for "getFirefox" gives me the 15.0.1 download ; here is the all language 16.0 link (from the Mozilla Forum posts you linked to) :-

http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all.html

Quite a strange situation , I was lucky 'enuff to get 16.0 from my Ff internal updater (release channel) :))

Any other info on what they are checking/looking for on feedback ??Mine's running cool atm .

Anthony

Hello Maurice Joyce and all,

Sorry to read the "getFirefox" link gave you the 15.0.1 download.
While I have NL as first preferred language, Firefox redirects me to:
http://www.mozilla.org/nl/firefox/fx/?from=getfire...
Not sure you are redirected a second time, the above link gives me a link to Mozilla Firefox 16.0-NL.
It was just a bit of luck I found the post on Mozilla's forum about the temporary disabled automatic update to Firefox 16.0. I have no more further info.
Firefox 16.0 runs here fine too. Can't find a way to let FF crash. : )

Websafe.

Hi Websafe ,

Your latest link is to your Dutch 16.0 the other was to the en-US version of 15.0.1 ; under the green 15.0.1 download button is a link to "systems and languages" and does in fact go to the 16.0 page in my link - not a 15.0.1 page as one might of thought - the pale yellow of the link makes it not very clear/obvious , hence my post .

Thank you for pointing us in the right direction . I read that the deliciious plug-in is giving problems with the history menu in the url bar of 16 ..

Take care

Anthony

I can confirm Anthony's solution is working. In fact, PSI 3.0 isn't to blame, but Mozilla Firefox: 15.0.1 version's internal updater reported "Up to date" when 16.0 is available in release channel.

Rgdz,

Firefox 16 has been withdrawn. It has a security vulnerability:
http://blog.mozilla.org/security/2012/10/10/securi...
http://secunia.com/advisories/50932/

Incidently, PSI 2 updated my old Vista laptop to Firefox 16 yesterday. It installed EN-US instead of EN-GB.

Turns out that 16 was pulled by Mozilla due to a security flaw.

Better to wait this out than to have a flawed version!

Just seen this http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/news/security/3404407/f... so if you upgraded any PCs to FF16 then roll them back to FF15 ASAP.
Just get the 15.0.1 installable and run it. That will roll back to 15.0.1 without loss of data or settings. PSI will show a vulnerability but you will have to live with that until Mozilla issue a fixed version of FF.

PS: Remember to turn OFF the Automatic updates for this program - at least until the fix is released and tested properly. If you leave it turned on, PSI will update you to the faulty version with the vulnerability until Secunia pull it as well.

Hi all,

The obvious question - how does Secunia react to this situation and since PSI is still updating systems with flawed release - how quickly?

Can it reverse an installation as I have no idea?

Cheers

Martyn

Mozilla are suggesting the possibilty of going back until there is a 16.x repair ; as I have posted elsewhere :-

""HI ,

Mozilla Firefoxversion 15.x suffers from a more/"highly" crtical unpatched vulnerability in SA50856 :-

http://secunia.com/advisories/50856/

I would say that the best (current) solution is to make sure you :

either use an alternative browser (note that IE8 has a well known vulnerability of similar criticality to the one in version 16.x .)

or use your best safe browsing rules and avoid visiting unqualified sites where possible .""

If you wish to go back , the link I posted above now gives you the 15.0.1 download page , run your language and it should replace the 16.0 .

AS ddm has remarked , it looks like my 16.0 version from the Ff internal updater is US and not GB English .

The fix for 16 is supposedly due today - depending on your geo-location .

Stick or twist ?? Horns of Catch 22 :((

Take care

Anthony

HI ,

Firefox 16.0.1 was released at 12.00 PT and fixes the vulnerability in SA50932 :-

https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2012/10/10/secur...

you will need to be patient until Secunia update the SA and correct the PSI detection rules ; not likely before tomorrow Friday the 12th CET .

Full details of 16.0.1 are here:-

http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/16.0.1/releas...


Hope that ie helpful .

Anthony

The PSI 2.0 had just shown Firefox 16.x vulnerable in Secure Browsing tab: "Unpatched, no vendor solution" after 16.0.1 update, but the comment disappeared by itself and now it shows "Patched". Probably just a whim of good old 2.0 version.
