Most ISPs implement a transparent web-proxy/cache these days and they can sometimes deliver out of date information. The osuosl one has definitely been updated, so if it's still delivering the old one to you even after you've cleared your browser cache, then it's probably your ISPs fault. Alternatively, osuosl could be using some sort of round-robin cluster and not all nodes have been updated yet.
Check the ChangeLog.txt in a few minutes, Firefox update will be in there as well as some other niceties.
After upgrading 13.0 today, Firefox is at 3.6.2 but Mozilla Firefox 3.6 Release Notes say "Firefox 3.6.3 fixes a critical security issue ... bug 555109" so we are not in the clear yet. Bug 555109 is not visible even after logging in to Mozilla's Bugzilla so it's not possible to assess the risk or consider workarounds.
Time zone can be a factor. If Pat posts updates early morning US time then they might be too late for the daily sync and not turn up till the following day. I've never had to wait more than 1 day though.
My ISP virignmedia have their own mirror, but I've found that one highly unreliable.
