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"?

Hi Niels

I think there may be a confusion in the translation of terms/words between Danish and English.

Is the old version of Ff. (3.6.3) showing under your "Usikkert" tab - which is shown as "Insecure" in English (and not "Unsafe"; although implied meaning is the same)?

If it is under the "Sikker Browsing" (Secure Browsing) tab, then the following would be shown: "Usikker, ingen lÝsning" (Insecure, no solution), to the right of the listing for Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x.

I suspect that it is showing in the Usikkert/Insecure tab, and the old version was not removed/overinstalled with update 3.6.6, which PSI is finding and correctly flagging as insecure.

I hope this may help to clarify any confusion.

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
