Secunia does not recognize 3.6 as an update to 3.5.x after it has been installed.

@MistahKurtz9899 ,

You need to tell us where the PSI is locating the versions of 3.5.x and 3.6.x of Firefox .

You need to get the information using the advanced mode of the PSI - link in the top right corner of any PSI page .

Here are some tips on using this mode ;-

It would be a shame not to try the "advanced" mode ; so here are some tips for "looking around" :-

Click on each/all the tabs and there is plenty of written advice about what each tab contains .

If a "problem" shows in the "insecure" or "end of life" tabs , then to help resolve any 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 .

Hope this helps .

Anthony

Hi, MistahKurtz9899?Anthony.

FileHippo's Update Checker*** told me earlier this week that my Firefox needed updating, which I did.

Secunia now shows it (v. 3.6.8) in both the Patched & Secure Browsing tabs.



*** http://www.filehippo.com/

PS It also showed CCleaner & other programs that I use as needing an update.

Hello taffy ,

Secunia (should) have been showing that Firefox needed a security update in the PSI "insecure" and "secure browsing" tabs since 26/07/2010 (well over 3 weeks ago) :-

http://secunia.com/advisories/40720/

How come you only just found it now and from Filehippo and not the PSI ???

The "auto-update" in your PSI 1.9.0.2. or Firefox itself should have taken care of this some time ago !!

At the moment we do not know which versions of Ff 3.5x and/or 3.6x @MistahKurtz is having trouble with ; I'll leave you to sort it when/if she/he reports back .

Anthony

You're right, Anthony. I did wonder at the time. I'll email Support rather than hijack this thread.
