Fennec 12.0a1 (2012-01-01) When Fennec hasn't been run for a while and the Android notification bar offers an update, Fennec gets started but no update dialog appears. I have to manually check for updates again in "about:" to be able to upgrade. Whatever state Firefox is in we should not fail in presenting the update dialog to the user. It makes it hard for normal users to find updates for their browser.

I'll note this appears to happen in most cases where the system has shut down fennec (probably to reclaim ram). Fennec reloads the last page loaded (usually into a new tab, leading to an ever-increasing number of tabs).
If we do end up shipping any builds as web downloads that update over AUS, QA has flagged this bug as a specific concern. Nominating for blocking-fennec1.0.

minusing this for Fennec-1.0 important if we ship smaller locales as a manual download

Updater changed a lot; it now works better. Re-open if this is still an issue.
