    Hi guys - This is minor, but after spending 20 minutes+ on it, now I am annoyed. The FF minor patch downloaded, but I keep getting a "software update failed...please make sure all apps are closed and you have write access....then restart FF" dialog box. Obviously, I have shut everything down (outside of rebooting in safe mode...which maybe I should do), and I do have write access.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Probably an extension problem. Run Firefox in safe mode which will disable all extensions and run default theme.
    If it runs ok, then it is an extension or theme effecting Firefox.
    Start> Mozilla Firefox> Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode).
