Incorrectly (interpreted). I had used the distro version since gutsy
became available. Then firefox 18.104.22.168 became available, and I simply
opted to perform a Help > About Firefox to see what it said. The response
was 22.214.171.124. I figured that was odd, so I performed ls -l
/usr/bin/firefox, and forget if it showed a binary or symlink to
To verify/quite what the 126.96.36.199 firefox really does say in Help > About,
I visited mozilla.com, obtained the original, extracted it, placed it in
/usr/local/bin/firefox, and redirected /usr/bin/firefox to
/usr/local/bin/firefox/firefox. That accurately showed 188.8.131.52 under
Help > About. I then completely closed the mozilla.com version, opened
the older version, selected Help > About, and, again, got 184.108.40.206.
