 Replying to [comment:10 gk]:
 > Okay, some more info: I can reproduce the bug with a clean 8.0a9 if I
 start it once and then shut it down again as soon as a window is visible,
 making sure the update gets applied on a used profile.

 I can reproduce it this way too.

 > However, the update succeeds in this case if I move the Tor Browser dir
 before updating (i.e. before the second start), which is kind of weird,
 but hey!

 Ah, I also noticed that if I move the Tor Browser directory to a different
 path (even after updating), it solves the issue.
