I tried on 2 different Mac with OS X (10.4.8). One PPC the other Intel. Theme/Extension Update runs nicely for standard users and root, but do not work for users with administrator rights. For themes, download is OK but install fails. For extensions I get an error 228. I tried after deleting the default profile. I tried with a new profile.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!
No change with Firefox 2.0
could you check if hints reported here can help you solving your problem? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_install_themes_or_extensions_-_Firefox
(In reply to comment #3) > could you check if hints reported here can help you solving your problem? > http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_install_themes_or_extensions_-_Firefox > I have not been able to check all hints because I deleted the involved account on my Mac. This account was the only one where downloading/installing themes or extensions did not work. I did some testing on other accounts (admin and standard) and everything works perfectly. So the bug had nothing to do with the fact that the account is an admin account. I set the bug to invalid.
