User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.11) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/2.0.0.11

When updating a relatives PC, from 2.0.0.5 (or there abouts) - I went to "Help/Update" - the install was updated to 2.0.0.6. The homepage was set to the above URL (http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/2.0.0.6/whatsnew/) - which shows that this is the latest version. However it is not. 

When releasing a new version, the old version jump page should be updated to indicate that its no longer the most recent version and another update should be performed.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above.
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
Informed that FF was up-to-date

Expected Results:  
Should have been informed FF was not up-to-date and another update performed.

This is security problem - as people will be running out-of-date software in the belief that its up-to-date.

You may well say that help/update will show thats not the case, but many non-technical people dont ever use that menu!
