I have not been able to clear a security threat that says I need to download Mozilla Firefox 3.0.x. It has been coming up on Secunia for months. I repeatedly downloaded it, cleared extra entries from my list of downloads, rescanned and done everything I know to do. Each time I boot up my computer I get the warning that there is 1 program that is insecure/end-of-life and expose me to security threat. When I open Secunia, it instructs me to download Mozilla Firefox 3.0.x. That download is so old now I don't even know how to download it but I have updated all the Mozilla Firefox updates including that one and every one since.

Using PSI Advanced mode, click on Insecure tab, where the insecure version of Firefox should be listed. Then click on [+] to expand toolbox icons, find Open Folder icon and click - this takes you to the location of the insecure file.

Providing you have latest version also installed (3.6.3) you can manually remove the old insecure file that PSI is reporting - highlight>right click>delete. May need further deleting from recycle bin.

Restart and rescan PSI.

You could also look under add/remove programs (from control panel) to see if the old version is listed here, where it can be removed if it's present.

If the above doesn't work, you could consider:

1) Uninstall and reinstall of Firefox;

2) Uninstall and reinstall of PSI - solved a few similar problems, a couple of months back, after Secunia did some maintenance work on the server.
