Browser out of date warning

The other day my Macbooks Firefox updated itself to version 10 & ever since then whenever I try to log into this site I get a banner across the top of the page warning that my browser is out of date & I should update it or else the site might not display correctly.

I only see this on the login page & as far as I can tell everything in the site does display fine.

this warning does not come from our websites.

Here is what I see when trying to login from my Macbook, my Macbook is running osx 10.6.8 & Firefox 10.0

This is the only page I have seen this message & it doesn't appear when I am using my iMac which is running the same OS but Firefox 9.0.1

I asked about it over at Mozilla & apparently I am seeing that error message because your browser detection script is out of date, here is the response to my enquiry


Their browser detection script is out of date. The warning seems to come from this file: , specifically, the badBrowser() function.

It's checking for "Firefox/1", which it finds as part of "Firefox/10".

Perhaps point them towards this blog post:…iffing-scripts/

maybe you need to empty your cache before the change is visible
