 Updating Firefox

I'm quite new to FreeBSD and thought I'd update Firefox from 1.0.3 to the latest version (1.0.7 according to I uninstalled the old version using pkg_delete and added the new version using "pkg_add -r firefox" as it says to do on the Freshports page.

Everything looked as if it had installed properly, but on running Firefox it still says I'm using the old version (1.0.3). Is there any preliminary configuring that I should have done before hand to get the latest version?

If anyone could help me, it would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,
