Just updated in Win7 x64 and the update is stuck in a never ending loop?

Firefox attempts to open, but then pops up a box "Software Update Failed". Inside that box it says "The update could not be installed. Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again."

Click the okay button, Firefox tries to open, and this same box opens, a hopelessly ending loop.

Tried running as 'administrator' and same problem?

Went to Mozilla directory and the firefox.exe has been backed up to firefox.exe.backup, with no other executable present.

I renamed file back to firefox.exe and now Firefox works but will not update, the update runs fine and restarts Firefox, but version 3.05 is still showing as version I'm using?

Tried deleting 'update' directory and update xml files, no go, same problem.

Downloaded Firefox 3.06 and reinstalled over 3.05 and it all seems to be working again, dammed annoying as to what was causing it to loop after an auto update?

Oh well, its working now lol

Firefox Update 32.0
I updated to Firefox 32.0 and since then Youtube videos have taken ages to load, for example opened up a video link on YouTube 20 minutes ago, it is still loading as I'm writing this, should I downgrade to an earlier version or might it be my internet that is really slow? Um right so cheers.

Firefox update 20.0 not so good.
The new update for Firefox mess up all kinds of things on my computer. I used a restore point back to 19.0.2 and I think things are back to normal. I suggest you have a good restore point before updating Firefox. Hope this helps someone.
