I've noticed that for quite some time firefox seems to become quirky if
it was running when you upgrade.  Lots of little things that don't seem
like much, but which you're sure aren't working right or shouldn't
happen, right down to not being able to close firefox (and having to
killall firefox-bin)

And then you restart it, and it does one of the version check things and
you think, ah, that's right, I upgraded firefox while it was running.
