Firefox 4 and 5 refuse to replace my Firefox 3.6. Dragging the Firefox icon to the Applications icon never succeeds.

I tried installing Firefox 4 several times, and Firefox 5 several times. Each time, I got only as far as the window with the Firefox and Applications icons. When I dragged the Firefox icon onto the Applications icon and released it, it bounced back to its former position. Firefox 3.6 remained the only installed version.

Try dragging the existing Firefox icon from your Applications folder to the trash can first.
