User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.10 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/8.0.552.200 Safari/534.10
Build Identifier: Windows NT 6.0;rv:2.0b6 - Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b6

The new version of FF 4.06 was downloaded automatically. It prompted me to restart and I did. It installed the update and at the end of install I got a security warning saying the action is not allowed (or something of that sort!) and once the browser came up, it could not open up any page.

To the worst, I need to open up IE to report this error.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On Windows vista home premium 32 bit, update FF to 4.06 beta.
2. Install the software update.
3. Install completes till the end but you will get a security warning.
4. Browser opens but you wont see the 'Firefox updated!' page or any other page.
Actual Results:  
Could not open any webpage.

Expected Results:  
Open up webpage.

I have IE, Chrome and Opera extra. On Windows 32 bit, Vista home premium.

What is the exact error message ?
Do you mean bug 588511 ?
Over to general for triage since the installer wasn't involved and application update successfully installed the update though the browser was busted after the update.

Chances are this is a duplicate of bug 588511
