The real error is this:

mv: cannot move `firefox-55.0a1-WINNT-20170315051536-x86_64-symbols.txt.tmp' to `firefox-55.0a1-WINNT-20170315051536-x86_64-symbols.txt': Permission denied

which seems like a releng class of problems. Feel free to move it to a better component, I'm not really sure where it belongs.

Did some investigations here and it seems that most jobs are finished successfully.
Coudn't find any major difference or step which could influence the final result,in most cases we have this output:

INFO -  mozmake.EXE[4]: Entering directory 'c:/builds/moz2_slave/autoland-w64-00000000000000000/build/src/obj-firefox'

These situations are very isolated (0.01 failures/push) so I will change the status to resolve and if the problem will escalate we will reopen the bug.

Well we need a bug open so that future failures that happen because of this can be starred with the bug - if the bug is closed it stops showing up in TreeHerder as a related bug. We need to keep starring failures of this sort with this bug so that if the frequency goes up we'll know. That in turn might change the decision whether or not to fix it. So I'm going to reopen this, but feel free to move it into some other component if you don't want it sitting in Buildduty.
