When attempting today's suggested of testing the channel switch from Aurora to Beta in the "About Aurora" dialog, Firefox failed to properly relaunch (and subsequently manually launch) four times in a row. When I took a glance at the processes on my computer to see if it was running, the automatic relaunch had opened two firefox.exe*32s and they were sitting in the mid-1000ks in memory usage. I had to end those processes and try two more times before it would launch.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Switch from Aurora to Beta channels.
2. Apply update.
3. Attempt to relaunch.

Actual Results:  
The computer opened two Firefox executables instead of one.

Expected Results:  
Opened one and launched properly.
