Comment (by mcs):

 I was able to successfully update and open an older en-US 6.5a2
 installation to 6.5a3 on one OSX 10.11.6 system.

 On another system, I tried to update a newly installed es-US 6.5a2 browser
 but it did not go well. The first thing I noticed is that the incremental
 MAR failed to apply. I will have to investigate more tomorrow, but last-
 update.log contains:
 EXECUTE PATCH Contents/MacOS/updater.app/Contents/MacOS/updater
 LoadSourceFile: destination file size 106848 does not match expected size
 LoadSourceFile failed
 ### execution failed

 The complete MAR was applied successfully, but then the app will not open.
 It looks like the mode is wrong on some files, e.g.,
 TorBrowser.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox has mode 644 instead of 755. I am
 out of time for today, but maybe (some of?) the MAR files are wrong.
