When starting Firefox on an account other than the administrator's where the administrator uses Mac OS X FileVault to encrypt their home directory, the user will be prompted for a password to access files in admin.sparseimage. If the user cancels several times (4-12) then Firefox may eventually display a browser window. The administrator installed Firefox in /Applications and ran it before the user tried to access it as described in the known issues document for Firefox 1.0. After installing, it would appear that the only Firefox related files in the admin.sparseimage are related to the Full Circle error reporting. The folder is named "MozillaOrgFirefoxTrunkMacOSX2004121807".

I have re-tested with: Camino - nightly - Version 2005092704 (1.0a1+), Firefox - Version 1.5 Beta 1; and, Firefox - Version 1.0.7 on Mac OS X 10.4.2 and am pleased to see that the problem no longer exisits. It still shows up on the Camino 0.8.4 release if anyone wants to see it. :) Anyway... glad it's fixed. I've marked it as resolved/fixed. (Hope that is the correct action)
