I was currently using the version 51.0.1. Checked for FF update if there is any. It said "update to 52ESR". I clicked OK. However FF wasn't updated properly after restarting itself automatically.

Only after closing Firefox and waiting for a while, Firefox Software Updater starts as expected and update completes.

 

(I noticed same behaviour while upgrading to 51.0.1 few weeks ago.)

I think you didn't understand what I mean.

Same behaviour today, while upgrading from 52ESR to 52.0.1ESR:

Check for updates-->Click on "Update Firefox" button-->Downloading-->Restarting automatically-->No success. Close FF again. Wait few seconds and restart. Done! Update installed.
