User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3

I had one Firefox window open with three tabs. I was prompted to update, which I accepted. 

It notified me that Firefox was restarting. 

The restart failed.

I selected the Firefox program in my start menu and got this Windows Error:

Application popup: firefox.exe - Bad Image : The application or DLL C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\xul.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette. 

I went to mozilla.com, reinstalled Firefox. Everything works fine now.
