Hi,

We have been unable to reproduce, and systems with Firefox 3.6.6 check out on our end. The PSI provides links to 3.6.4 because this is the latest secure version. The updates following this are bug fixes or other updates provided by the mozilla foundation.
As long as your version is equal to or higher that 3.6.4 you are secure, and the PSI should show this.

have you tried a full rescan?

As someone had mentioned that 3.6.6 was just a prettied up version (I take his word for it as I could not detect any difference) I "down graded" to 3.6.4 on the offending Win 7 machine. Three other Win 7 machines and an old XP run quite happily with 3.6.6 - go figure ?!?

Thanks all the same for your help.

Hi,

This problem should not be occuring, and if you wish, I'd like to help you find the cause.
To futher examine the problem we need a debug log from you. To get this, I need you to follow the following steps. Please send the log to support@secunia.com, and do NOT post it here, as it contains sensitive information specific to you.

1) Close the PSI by right-clicking the issue and selecting Exit.
2) Press start, the run run, and enter "cmd"
3) In the command line window that appears, enter "cd "C:\Program Files\Secunia\PSI""
(It is important that you surround the path with quotes it the command will fail.
4) Enter psi.exe --verbose --debug secunia.txt
5) The PSI will not run in debug mode. Please run a full scan, letting it finish, then terminate the PSI.

There will now be a file called secunia.txt in the folder C:\Program Files\Secunia\PSI. Please email us this file, and we can examine the problem further.
