I also have troubles with this. The worst thing is that firefox often 
after such update dies, without saving the tabs etc. as it does when it is 
killed. And because it dies after update anyway, I would just suggest to 
put a "killall firefox" in PREIN script. Because this will trigger the 
firefox saving mechanism and would not cause a data loss.

Regarding arguments - you should know as you are updating - this is not 
true, if you are using e.g. updatesd and set it to update automaticaly.
