I had version 54.x installed and it worked properly for multi-user use. The file permissions it had are listed in the attached firefox.txt. I then let Firefox update itself to 55.0.3 and the resulting permissions prevented other users on the system from being able to run Firefox. The permissions from the post-upgrade are in the attached firefox2.txt. This is a continuation of bug 836760.
Can't figure out how to add attachments so I'll just paste in the relevant firefox permissions problem. Before upgrade: -rwxr-xr-x@ 1 long admin 24224 Jul 3 13:00 firefox After update: -rwx-w----@ 1 long admin 24224 Sep 13 15:39 firefox
Reporter: Can you please provide which version of MacOS you are running? Thanks.
Well the drive on that Mac died a nasty death before I could respond. The OS version should have been 10.12.6 as I do keep it up to date but I don't think I have a way to fully verify that now.
Never mind, I dug up some HTTP logs that confirm I have been using 10.12.6.

Are you still able to reproduce this when updating from Firefox 55 or above to a newer version?

I let it update from 58.0.1 to 58.0.2 tonight and it appears that the proper file permissions were maintained.
Bug 1337007 was fixed in Firefox 55 and the fix would only be seen when updating from Firefox 55 to a newer version. Quite certain that bug 1337007 fixed this.
