If you have 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 DMG file to the desktop

  • 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.

I have this problem too and doing what was suggested - downloading from scratch does not solve the problem. Still get the same error message. Just tried that.

Did you move the Firefox 3.0.6 installation to the trash?
