Upgrading from 2.0.0.3 to 2.0.0.2???

Hi all,
My Firefox was upgraded to 2.0.0.3 last week.
However, last night I got a pop-up window informing me that I have
just received 2.0.0.2 as an update.
What is going on?
Regards,
alex

Did you have 2.0.0.2 and updated to 2.0.0.3, and are not getting 
messages about 2.0.0.2?

Yes. It's updated automatically, just as usual.

What messages?
I should point out that the "About FireFox" still shows the version as
2.0.0.3:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/
20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3

Lee, lets stretch a point here.
About 2 weeks or so ago, I whined here about  FF updating upon opening
w/o asking 1st
as my settings request.
I received no response to my post.  A day or so later, someone else
asked the same question and AFAICT
the only replies were a few "happened to me too" but no indication of
what the problem could be.
Maybe ozgwei is victim to the same anomaly but reversed.
Sometime /after/ he upgraded himself manually to 2.0.0.3, the mystery
updater worked its magic, again unrequested and reverted him
to 2.0.0.2.
Sounds plausable, illogical as it may seem.
Also sounds like a trip to bugzilla is in order, but I have a hard time
searching there...

Oops - just saw Chris' post - sounds like what OP was talking about.
But I didn't get a /report/ of an update - I got the update installed,
which can
be a bit more disconcerting.

I never had an update problem before, but now I have the same problem as 
as the OP.
I read the link provided by Chris in his reply, but the problem does in 
fact appear to be worse than reported.
<http://kb.mozillazine.org/Updates_reported_when_running_newest_version> 
says "A bug can cause Firefox to report that updates are available even 
when none exist."
In my case the Software Update window says "Firefox has downloaded and 
verified an important update", despite the fact that I have set FF to 
ask me what to do!
This is not good, and I wonder what will happen when I restart FF? =-O

and if you find that firefox has downloaded(without permission) update
and ask you to restart FF , select 'No'
close firefox.
goto firefox program folder.
Delete active-update.xml, updates.xml and the complete "updates" folder.
start Firefox

Thanks for the link, although it refers to Firefox 2.0.0.1 auto-updating 
to 2.0.0.2
In my case it's 'updating' from 2.0.0.3 to 2.0.0.2 =-O

Thanks for your advice.
I haven't yet shut down FF since the message appeared.
Do you think the advice is still relevant, despite the fact that in my 
(and in the OP's case) the 'update' is from 2.0.0.3 to 2.0.0.2, not from 
2.0.0.1 to 2.0.0.2??
By the way, I'm surprised there aren't more complains about this recent 
update experience. How come only the OP and I appear to be affected by 
this specific situation?
Something to do with extensions, perhaps?

Thanks, Nir.......that solved the problem I was seeing with Firefox 
wanting to upgrade from 2.0.0.3 to 2.0.0.2.

That seems to have worked, thank you.
It is basically the information given in the link provided by Chris 
(<http://kb.mozillazine.org/Updates_reported_when_running_newest_version 
 >), although the description on that page is somewhat different than my 
situation, as I said.
Anyway, hopefully everything is OK now, and hopefully the situation 
won't repeat itself.

"Bug 372123 =96 Firefox 2.0.0.1 auto-updated to 2.0.0.2 even though
updates were disabled"
and you said "In my case the Software Update window says "Firefox has
downloaded and verified an important update", despite the fact that I
have set FF to ask me what to do! " - what seemed to be similar issue.
well, I think this bug will not occur in future versions

Yes, it is/was indeed similar, except it was a backwards 'update' 
attempt =-O

Well, here we are two weeks later and the same thing just happened to me, i.e., a popup
saying v. 2.0.0.2 has just been downloaded...(etc)
even though I've been running 2.0.0.3 since March 23!  My prefs are set for automatic update,
but one would think the script would be clever enough to recognize it is going backwards!
This 2.0.0.3 version has been cranky, but if I recall correctly, the 2.0.0.3 update was
primarily for security reasons.  If in fact it does degrade to .2, I suppose I can just
manually reinstall the .3.
It's a pain to retrain NoScript, etc. though!

I had the same thing happen to me just now. I changed to 'Ask me what
to do' if it really makes any difference. This is the first time it
happened.
