When I try to download the application upgrade, it tells me I can't move it because 'applications' can't be modified. What does that mean?
I am trying to Upgrade my Firefox program. It downloads the application, however when I try and move the software over, it says I can't because applications can't be modified. What does that mean? My current version is 3.0. What application is it talking about?

If there are problems with updating or with the permissions then easiest is to download the full version and trash the currently installed version to do a clean install of the new version.
Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the disk image (dmg) file to the desktop
- Firefox 7.0.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html
- Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re-)install
- 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 if you uninstall and (re)install Firefox.
