Please make sure all other applications are closed and that you have permission to modify files, then restart Firefox to try again." I am logged in as administrator/owner etc. so I think I have permission to update/modify files. I've even tried disabling NIS to see if that fixes the problem, but no, it does not. Please help. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to help, click on check for updates, then click on "download and install now" 2.the file downloads (7.3MB), then click on "restart firefox now" after it said it downloaded and verified the update successfully. 3.Then I get the above error (described in details) Actual Results: same results all the time. Oh, but when we restart firefox all tabs were erased even though I clicked on "restore session." Expected Results: Nothing happens. Firefox starts up again, like normal but it's still version 188.8.131.52 updated to 184.108.40.206, I would think... Unless it's already updated but it doesn't say it under the help, about firefox tab.
The problem could be caused by permissions issues or access issues on your Firefox application folder. This could be caused by anti-virus software, software that changes file permissions, or other software that might open files in the Firefox folder. You should try looking at your last-update.log file for a detailed error message. In Windows, it would be c:\program files\firefox\updates\last-update.log.
