I agree. It would be highly confusing to a user to get notices for an
update and for them to try and update it in the generic way such notices
will give them. Firefox fits into this category as well, and I don't
believe it notifies users of pending updates in Fedora.
Also, this kind of nonsense is one of things that makes running
Windows so miserable today... For instance, Acroread pops up a modal
dialog, asking me if I want to install some junkware I've never heard
of, that freezes Firefox -- this modal dialog can be hard to find
sometimes, so I end up having to kill Firefox. I have to supervise the
Windows machine for a minute or so when I turn it off, which is a real
pain when I'm running late for the bus at the end of the work day.
