102     v= navigator.vendorSub;
105     e = v.replace(/\./g,'');
106     // do a little math
107     while (e<100) e*=10
-- vendorSub = '' -- '' * 10 = 0 -- 0 * 10 = 0 -- 0 < 100 -- ...
108     if (e < 622){
109         //call function to write cookie and show popup if 6.2.1 or lower
110         is_ns622up = false;
111         oldbrowser();

vendorSub can be anything and doesn't relate to gecko versions. our product doesn't have a vendor sub, so we hit an inifite loop (eventually you /might/ get a slow script dialog, but that takes a really long time). in some cases a vendor sub might be 1.7.12 (fedora core vendor build), in other cases it might be 1.0.4 (firefox 1.0.4). in the former you would get the "you're new", and in the latter  a "you're old".
