Firefox version 3.6.3 is not recognized as the latest version by Secunia. This may be because version 3.6.3 shows its File version as 1.9.2.3743 and its Product version as 3.6.3. Is it possible that Secunia is tagging the File version and not the Product version?
All I know is that after multiple scans and two upgrades of Firefox (both using the latest upgrade from Mozilla, PSI still says I have an older version.
Hopefully, Secunia will address this issue and I can quit getting a false reading.

Hi salembruce & welcome to the Forum

If the PSI is detecting older versions of Firefox, using the Advanced mode, click on the + at the left of the program to open>click on Technical Details in that window that opens there should be 3 subjects visible: I'll give my settings

1. Version Detected 3.6.3

2. Installation Path C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

3. Last Inspection of Program day month year time timezone (CET)

These settings are from the Patched tab. If you have Firefox showing in
the Insecure tab same applies. i.e. track down the filepath so you can remove
them manually if they aren't populated in Add/Remove.

Then reboot & rescan to make sure all remnants were removed.

Hope this helps.

Regards, wr

Hi salembruce

@wr's information/suggested action may solve your problem, but in my experience Ff. updates are straight forward and have never left behind the old file version.

In my opinion, this problem could be caused by something else and may need full uninstall/re-install of Ff.

OR

PSI is falsely reporting Ff. - hopefully this could be the reason.

There have been a few irregularities recently, reported here on the forum, involving different programs - insecurities being reported by PSI when the latest version is installed; incorrect version numbers being reported; some programs not being picked up after updating.

Fortunately the solution to some (unfortunately, not all) of these issues was relatively simple to apply - uninstall PSI from add/remove and then re-install.

As an established user, I would guess that you still have v.1.5.0.0. installed - by doing the above and installing v.1.5.0.1. could well resolve how PSI is reporting your Ff.

Even if you have the latest PSI version, it is still worth trying un- and re- install, as this may reset the scanner (from what I remember reading before).

If you follow this course, you may have to reboot and re-scan.

If this doesn't work, then more investigation and input will be required.

EDIT: Hi again. I've been re-assessing my appraisal of your situation, and am now wondering if the suggestion I proposed may be a bit simplistic in your particular case, due to the time scale involved. Secunia have only been changing/updating PSI within the last 10 days (approx.), and only issues since then have been rectified by the above outlined course of action. I would still recommend trying it, though, as it may still have an effect - I'm just a little less confident, as I was initially.

Thank you Timow. Installing PSI's newest version and running a scan was all that was needed. One would have thought that I would have tried that to begin with. Usually PSI notifies me when a new version is released, but this time I missed it somehow.

Thanks for the reply wr.
Seems that all I needed was to install the newest version of PSI and run a scan.
