We'd like to remove the version number from the What's New page. http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/5.0/whatsnew/ but we still need to let people know they're running the latest version of Firefox. We need short lines of copy for the following:

1. Something like "You are running the latest version of Firefox" (can that be shortened somehow?

2. In case you downgraded, or just installed a older version of Fx, it should say something like "You are running a outdated version of Firefox, upgrade to the latest version here"

Hooray! Your Firefox is up to date. (<-- with or without the hooray)

You're on the latest version of Firefox.

Your Firefox is out of date. Upgrade to the latest version.

Stay up to date. Upgrade your Firefox to the latest version.

I like this since it's shorter, but without the Hooray.

I like this one since it's short and straightforward.

screenshot of existing headlines

Reopening to get a bit of confirmation/clarification on the updated wording:

The current headlines are as follows:

If you're up to date:

H1: You are now running Firefox 5.0
P:  Can’t find your last tab session? _Get answers to the most common questions here._


If you are NOT up to date:

H1: You’re now running Firefox X.X
P:  For security reasons, we recommend downloading the _latest and greatest version_.


I wanted to confirm what I was replacing.

For the up-to-date case, I think it's clear. We replace "You are now running Firefox 5.0" with "Your Firefox is up to date." and leave the paragraph about tab sessions in place.

For the out-of-date case, I wasn't sure. Should the new headline ("Your Firefox is out of date. Upgrade to the latest version.") replace both the exisit heading and paragraph? Should it be all one line as a single headline (linking the "Upgrade..." part)? Should the first sentence be the headline, and the second a smaller linked paragraph (this seemed the most logical, but looked a bit odd in practice - perhaps due to the entirely linked second sentence).

Thanks.

This would be my reco:

If you're up to date (as you suggest in comment 7):

H1: Your Firefox is up to date.
P:  Can’t find your last tab session? _Get answers to the most common questions here._

If you are NOT up to date:

H1: Your Firefox is out of date.
P:  For security reasons, we recommend upgrading to the _latest and greatest version_.
