The prompt has been fixed in the last update, Currently the post-update Restart Prompt doesnt have a restart button.
Rather it has an Ok button which just dismisses the dialogue.

This restart can be simplified/made easier by adding a Restart button + a Cancel button.

I'm having an extension that adds a restart button , Else there would be no-way of restarting.
User will only have to bookmark all pages , close and start FF again.

This bug was fixed in the package ubufox - 0.8~b1-0ubuntu1

ubufox (0.8~b1-0ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  New upstream release 0.8b1 fixes:
  * fix: LP: #365965 - installing firefox pulls in ubufox and all gnome depends
    through apturl; we add alternative Depends on apturl-kde to make ubufox kde
    - update debian/control
  * fix LP: #423438 - ubufox can't use apturl on karmic; honour shebang by
    calling command directly rather than the python interpreter. Thx to Micah
    Gersten who provided the upstream fix.
    - update content/pluginInstallerService.js
  * fix LP: #403581 - restart required notification and button not shown
    in ffox 3.5; support multiple versions of in updateRestart.js; we use runtime
    application info from extIApplication.version
    - update content/updateRestart.js
  * fix LP: #411222 - restart required notification should be shown with
    less delay; checking for restart notification every 5 seconds (was 10 before) now
    - update content/updateRestart.js
  * fix LP: #429937 - plugin alternative wizard not available if there is no
    plugin content detected; don't disable "Manage Content Addons" initially;
    the dialog even makes sense if there is plugin content used atm.
    - update content/ubuntuAltpluginsOverlay.xul
  * fix LP: #399229 - update ubufox strings from 9.04 to 9.10 in various places
    + update releasenotes url in locale/*/
    + update HOMEPAGE_ONLINE in startpage.html
    + update plugin finder service database url in ubufox-pfs.js
    + update gethelp and translate urls in overlay.js
    + update execute command to use firefox rather than firefox-3.0 in overlay.js
    + include karmic sources in plugin db creation
      - add pfs/db/sources.list.9.10
  * support firefox 3.6 and 3.7 restart required feature and set maxVersion
    to 3.7.*
    - update content/updateRestart.js
    - update install.rdf
