1. Please add your comments below the text you want to comment.

2. Learn to cut text you don't comment. 

3. Your post is off-topic.

4. for automated updates to work (even in more situations of complex
dependencies), the package management system needs a good policy, that
is strictly enforced. I have found Debian (www.debian.org) to have a
good, and strictly enforced package managament policy. I have no
experience in automated upgrading Red Hat systems but: if your
"Mozilla favorites files" where under /home, they are probably still
there (No packaging system should never touch /home), if the were in
/etc backups was probably made during the upgrade.

Good Luck!
