As a result by following the instructions from the site any non-privileged user is unable to install any dictonary. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Download or drag'n'drop any of the dictonaries from http://www.mozilla.com/thunderbird/dictionaries.html 2. Choose install extension as a non-privilegied user 3. "Access denied" message box pops up without any file/pathname in the message. Expected Results: At least - better error message. May be a way to install a dictonary by per-user basics (e.g. into the profile)? I think that similar problems may be reproduceable on other OS-s.
