Hmmm... I generally leave FF running all the time in one virtual desktop,
so I think that I did have it running when the update started. When I saw
that FF was being updated, though, I am pretty sure that I closed it. I
know that I definitely did not receive any kind of warning message.

I could believe that I hit some kind of weird race condition, though.
