User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20051030 Firefox/1.6a1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20051030 Firefox/1.6a1

Firefox Nightbuild 1.6a1 - Deer Park Alpha 2 keeps downloading "updates" that is the same version of Firefox allready installed (1.6a1).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just wait for Firefox to automatically download updates.

Actual Results:  
Firefox downloaded the same version allready installed.

Expected Results:  
Firefox downloaded the same version allready installed.

Said that there wasn't any new updates released for the moment.
* You have a trunk build
* Trunk builds are on the nightly channel for software update, so you will be offered an update approximately every day, containing all the changes in the last 24 hours
* The version will not change until 1.6a1 is released. The nightly channel is a special case of software update - other channels like release will have a version change on each update
* The build date will change, eg 20051029 -> 20051030

ALSO....not only is this true...then when it downloads, it erases everything as if I started new with firefox.  All my bookmarks are gone, and the link bar is empty.  Pain in the ass and makes me not want to update.  Now only are the erroneous updates, they give me that Firefox installation box afterwards that makes me start all over again.
