[i]Secunia shows I have a firefox 3.6. I know I installed Firefox 4. When updated by Secunia, it installed 4. I received this message: "Something is trying to trick Firefox into accepting an insecure update. Please contact your network provider and seek help." I thought you'd want to know.

[i]I see no "about" however displays Secunia PSI 2.0
After seeing the + sign, below :
Firefox 4.0:
2 file folders, one w/ a red" - "sign on it, next to it C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox.exe, version 4.0

Latest version - patching one or more vulnerabilities: 4.0.1

Now, I don't know what OS means. Can you help me there please? (I have 2 computers w/ same problem).

I have Vista 7 if that helps to know....

Nice to talk to U on Messenger. I think Anthony will need a little more information to help U.

1. OS means Operating System. I believe U have a new Apple Mac which is not supported by Secunia. I think your other new PC is Windows 7. There is no such OS as Vista 7.

2. To give him the version of PSI U are using U need to Right click on the Tasktray icon near the clock (it could be red or orange or green) and select about. That will show U a number like 2.0.0.3003 - that is the data he is looking for.

3.More details on how to find the path & version number of Firefox are here:

FINDING A FILE PATH

From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each one.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Highlight it then copy (CTRL+C) then paste (CTRL+V)) that path back to the Forum.

Anthony is the best person to help U further so I will unsubscribe.
Sorry about the edit.
