After having updated Firefox to newest version twice I continue to get security warnings?

Firefox is a default installation.

Where are U getting the warning from? Is it under the SECURE BROWSING tab and covered by the caveat INSECURE NO SOLUTION with an SA number?

Yes, under UNSAFE tab PSI reports my Firefox version as 3.6.3 - although it is now updated to 3.6.6.

NK,
Can U be a little more precise. There is no UNSAFE tab with PSI.

Can U see this entry under the tab SECURE BROWSING?

Next to the Firefox entry is there some writing in blue that says "INSECURE NO SOLUTION"?

I have experienced similar problems. Secunia doesn't appear to recognise that 3.6.6 exists, and insists on 3.6.4

@AOD ,

The reason the PSI sees/offers Ff as version 3.6.4. rather than 3.6.6. is explained in this thread :-

Take care
