THe error says "the update could not be installed. Please make sure no other copies of firefox are running on your computer and then restart firefox to try again." I can then hit ok and Firefox will start, but without applying the upgrade. The same thing is happening on T-Bird. Firefox is 3.6.12 attempting to load 3.6.13 and T-bird is 3.1.6 attempting to load 3.1.7. I am running w7 home x64 on a homebuilt pc with AMD quadcore and 5gb memory.
