tried a manual run of ubuntuzilla to upgrade from from firefox 3.5.3 to the current latest version 3.5.6. seems to be two problems (see attached terminal log). first is that while i'm running firefox 3.5.3 and even tho 3.5.6 is detected as the latest version:
The most recent release of Firefox is detected to be 3.5.6.
firefox is already the newest version.
still things seem to move forward and then there is some sort of permissions problem (i guess??)
Backing up old Firefox preferences
cp: cannot open `/home/rone/.mozilla/eclipse/cookies.txt' for reading: Permission denied
and, btw, the i have the ubuntuzilla firefox updater installed but it hasn't been informing me of updates.... maybe related?
just in case it adds some insight, Ubunutuzilla upgraded Thunderbird without any problem.
