Gee, I feel silly! I just checked yum.log and 3.5.8 is the only
Firefox I have. Since 3.6 was released last month, I thought I was
running it. Then, what really got me confused, is when Firefox opened
after reboot (the update included a kernel). It said a newer version,
3.6, was available. I thought I was having another silly update

Isn't there a way to prevent this screen from appearing if Fedora is
not satisfied with the latest version?

Thanks to all. I'm really sorry for the trouble.
