The next time I try to start firefox it gives an error message that says "firefox-bin is still running" and will not allow firefox to start until I manually kill the process. Why is this happening? Any ideas?

Unfortunately, when you download/install an update, it is the entire Mozilla/Firefox-browser package ... last time I updated was to Firefox version 9.0 and it was somewhere around 26 Mb.
You might check in the Mozilla/Firefox Support Forums, they might be able to tell you more > http://forums.mozillazine.org/

Yesterday, it updated and that was just ~830 kb. I will post today's update size later. Sometimes, there is a re-spin in which case there will be a "full" update, ~ 17MB in case of Aurora. I now use Aurora all the time but it uses the profile it finds in .mozilla from my regular Firefox install.

There is no disadvantage at all. And it's cleaner also ...
