Yum/rpm package actions do not have (and should not have) any user
interaction.  Synchronisation (i.e. wait for user response) is
therefore impossible by design.

And what if many firefox instances (for more users) are running?

The only thing that could be done is sending some signal to all
firefox instances (and even that is tricky, but that won't help

Hi, but what happens with the people who have a low internet connection like me?
