Two weeks ago Mozilla released two new versions of their Firefox browser. I installed each in turn, only to be informed by PSI v. 3.0 that my 'Firefox 15.X' needs updating.

The file indicated as 'Firefox 15.0.4631' is in fact v. 16.0.1, located in:

C:\Programs (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

'Properties' on this file in File Explorer returns the correct version.

I don't know why PSI is misidentifying the file or why it indicates the file needs a manual update. I have installed it twice now, once through the Firefox updated and once through C|Net's TechTracker. Neither installation process seems to affect PSI's erroneous flag.

Do I just tell PSI to not bother with my critical software and just monitor everything else? Or is this a problem that Secunia can fix? I'd appreciate some clarification, please.

I have rescanned using PSI 3.0 and Firefox now comes up with the correct version. No further manual updates are requested or required.

Thank you for your help.
