Just a few minutes ago Fx displayed a dialog telling me it had just installed 2.0.0.2 and offered to restart Fx.

The thing is I upgraded to 2.0.0.2 on the 23rd when it was released.

And I was, as always, offered the option of upgrading. Again in this most recent case the update installed itself.

Did anyone else get this "update" today?

You gotta love the amount of effort that software vendors expend to make sure they have a place on your hard drive :)

Anything that smells like autoupdate on my systems is immediately suspect. An email announcement of an available update is ok, but self initiated uncontrolled updates are the curse of any systems administrator seeking system stability.
