This is a hit and miss thing. Sometime it restarts, other times it doesn't. Even when it does, though the update isn't applied. Bug 944774

Another scenario is that, after the partial update is downloaded, Fx starts. However, an error message appears saying that the partial update could not be applied and that Fx is downloading the full version - but it never does this.

This bug is fixed now. Alice, if you download a nightly from yesterday or the day before (assuming there are any), can you update successfully now?
