Bill... do you really have problems with upgrades? I've never had a problem with the upgrades. Then gain, I only have Download Helper, Live HTTP headers and NoScript add-ins installed. None of my clients (so far!) have experienced problems.

Yes. I can no longer simply click the upgrade link. If I do then I lose all my keyboard shortcuts. If I try to do a simple copy & paste (Ctrl+C Ctrl+V) then FF will try to bookmark the page or move to the last page in the history, or close the tab...or something equally odd. FF becomes completely unusable.
My solution is to completely uninstall and to re-install a new copy each time a new version comes out. This happens on multiple machines for me. I'm sure it's a matter of plug-ins conflicting somehow, but I don't have the time or patience to go in there and toggle each one to see what combination is to blame.

Weird! Not that you should have to do this, but might try it once.
When next update appears disable all add-ins (or uninstall them). Close FF then try the update. If it works then one of those add-ins is the problem. Which one would take trial and error and, as you say, that's probably more time expended than necessary.
All I can say is each one has worked spiffy first time, every time. Are you Win or Linix?
