PSI flags Firefox 3.6.11 as being a security risk when in Firefox, I click on "check for Updates" & there is no update found. I cannot seem to satisfy it, even though I have updated to the latest version. Path is "c:\Program files\Mozilla Firefox". I have rescanned after applying the 3.6.11 update.'About Firefox' shows 3.6.11, as expected.

Does the path you have given, relate to your current installation of Ff.3.6.11, or the insecure one?
If it is for the current, are you able to provide the full version number and file location/installation path of the insecure Ff. listing?
Can you also confirm which version of PSI you use, and is this on your W7 PC?

A severe bug was found a few days ago in FireFox 3.6.11 (allowed drive-by installation of malware -- the Nobel Peace Prize site was one malware source); I believe it has now been patched in 3.6.12, which is now available. As of my writing this, Secunia has not updated their downloaded version files to show as clear, but I expect that to occur within 24 hours.
