Firefox will not start after upgrade from 3.0.1

I have Firefox 3.0.1. I would like to upgrade to 3.6, but if I try to upgrade to any version, I cannot open Firefox. It is not like the other "Will not start" problems, because in the Task Manager, firefox.exe pops up, then goes away instantly. I have tried using Safe Mode, doing a clean install by uninstalling Firefox and my profile, cleaning the registry, then using CCleaner, then trying to reinstall, but the problem persists. Sometimes firefox.exe doesn't even show up in the Task Manager. I also cannot use any version of IE(even if I wanted to), Safari or Chrome. They all have the same results. I suspect that it is not a problem with Firefox, but with my computer, but I don't what is wrong. Can anyone help me?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I upgraded from 3.0.1

MBP OSX 10.6.7 4GB/250GB 2.4MHz

"The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items."

Error appears when trying to drag Firefox 4 to App folder

Oddly, on my Mac desktops, the install app says that "a newer version of what your trying to install is in your apps folder". No problems with installation and running FF 4.

On the MBP, it (correctly) says that an older version exists...but no installation and above error msg.
