That was indeed the problem. The ff3 pbi on our mirror server was corupt. I've re-uploaded the correct file now, and it should be on all the mirrors in thr next few hours. Sorry about the trouble! If you find any other which are corrupt, please let me know.

It's possible this is specific to the AMD64 version. I just downloaded the
Firefox 3.0.4 and KTorrent 2.2.8 updates and they did install fine. Firefox
initially did not report the 3.0.4 in the Start menu. After I rebooted, it all
showed and launched correctly.
