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

Doesn't the kernel have an inotify system that can efficiently pass
file change events back to an application (or firefox plugin in this
case) without having to poll continuously?

Possibly the same applet that warns of a kernel/system change
requiring a reboot could be broadened in usefulness to give the user a
specific notifier after an update that the rug might have been pulled
out from under their feet for certain applications.
