My machine is running version 3.5.10 Firefox. I tried to upgrade to 3..6.6 and it says insufficient privileges for some of the items, but I am logged in as an administrator on this machine. How can I get this upgraded?

This happened

Just once or twice

See ..... If you have Mac OS X 10.5 or newer then do this:

Download a new copy of the Firefox program: Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean reinstall. Install the new version that you have downloaded. Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data.
