Updates to Firefox

I have Firefox in Windows XP, Ubuntu and OS X on this computer. In Windows and Ubuntu, Firefox updates properly and is version 3.0.8. In OS X, Firefox is 3.0.6 and does not see any updates, even when clicking check for updates. It just tells me there are no updates available, when clearly there are; it doesn't seem to believe 3.0.7 or 3.0.8 exist.

Things I have tried:
- I have created a new profile and this does not help.
- I do not want to install 3.0.8 manually in the hope that this will force the updater into working in the future, because I had to install 3.0.6 manually in the first place after an earlier version could not see any updates. It has never updated, according to the update log.
- There has only ever been one user account on this operating system, so it is not that I do not have sufficient privileges to run an update.
- Updates to extensions work automatically and correctly.

Any ideas?
