Does firefox upgrades need some pre/post install love to close and restart firefox during upgrades

I think that if you are going to kill it that there should be a simple
dialog that pops up to inform the user what is going on so that it is not
perceived as either a Firefox or a Fedora failure.

It's not a "perhaps do something stupid": As far as I can tell
reliably dies every time during the update and the session saving
function fails to do its job.  Everything the user was working on in
Firefox is lost.

When firefox is killed it saves the current session state. Even form
entry information is saved.

I think it's unlikely that j-random-user is going draw much of a
distinction between an explicit kill and the current failure. Even if:
a desire to avoid blame is not a good reason to do the worse thing.

Of course, not crashing would be far better... but with all the on the
fly dl-opening Firefox does, I don't know how reasonable that is…
