I uninstalled mozilla, then I installed 1.3a and when I went to it says I have a security vulnerability and should
update to 1.3a

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. uninstall old mozilla
2. install 1.3a
3. go to

Actual Results:  
page says I need to update to 1.3a

Expected Results:  
Say I have the latest version
I encountered this problem. You need to change the symlinks that point to the
old version -- update them to point to the new version's directory. Otherwise
the old version gets called -- it is a upgrade problem; not a browser problem.

If you need more information, just say so =) I am going to get on my version of
linux and get more info on this in a bit.

Are you spoofing your useragent?  That's what it looks like based on what
bugzilla detected your browser as....

Nope, I did not do anything to the useragent. I am running on windows 2k.

Here is what my help file says

Mozilla 1.1

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826
So.. if your mozilla says it's 1.1, then indeed you should upgrade (to 1.2.1, at
least) as far as the website is concerned....

I rebooted. Uninstalled a re-install, and then deleted the original folder which
seemed to still be there. Did a search for any copies (none found) and then
rebooted again. Finally I re-installed 1.3a and it seemed to start up on that
version. For some reason I suppose the previous uninstall was refusing to work
correctly. Well, that's what I get for using Windows.
