 Every CPU should be affected, bug 100% reproducible.

 During startup firefox checks for `updater.exe` and start it if can.
 Problem with `libssp-0.dll` dynamically linked to `updater.exe`. Loader
 tries to search dll:

 C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop\Tor
 C:\WINDOWS\system32\libssp-0.dll NOT FOUND
 C:\WINDOWS\system\libssp-0.dll NOT FOUND
 C:\WINDOWS\libssp-0.dll NOT FOUND
 C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\libssp-0.dll NOT FOUND ( W.T.H ??!!!)
 C:\WINDOWS\system32\libssp-0.dll NOT FOUND
 C:\WINDOWS\libssp-0.dll NOT FOUND
 C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem\libssp-0.dll NOT FOUND

 But fails with every tried path, then updater terminates without any
 message box. Dll stored in c:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop\Tor
 Browser\Browser\libssp-0.dll but loader ignores that path (it tries to
 load from C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\libssp-0.dll instead).
 The same problem with dynamically linked `msvcr100.dll`, loader can't
 handle proper path and tries to load it from C:\Program Files\Mozilla
 Firefox (successfully if Firefox installed).
