Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:2.0b10pre) Gecko/20110118 Firefox/4.0b10pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:2.0b10pre) Gecko/20110118 Firefox/4.0b10pre

In FF I set "Automatically check for updates"   and   "Automatically donwload and install the update".

But this only works when I start FF with "administrative rights" (Windows 7).

When I start FF normally (standard rights), I get informed that a new update is available (via a windows-taskbar-popup) but when I click on it, only a new FF-window pops up saying "Downloading" - "Connecting to the update server". But then nothing happens anymore.

Reproducible: Always
