User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:12.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/12.0 Build ID: 20120420145725 Steps to reproduce: 1. download the nightly build of http://nightly.mozilla.org/ today with FF12.0 2. open firefox-15.0a1.en-US.win32.installer.exe Actual results: A popup dialogue as me to provide the password for administrator, also the current user is a member of the administrator groups. Expected results: I should be able to install FF15 with my current account
A typo to correct, in Actual results, ``also'' should be "although"
Find another typo, so let me write the "Actual results" again: A "Run as" dialogue asks me to provide the password for administrator, although the current user I am using now is a member of the administrator groups.
This sounds like a problem in Windows, not a problem with Firefox, but I might want to double check this with our platform guys. Never seen this happen on Windows on my machines I've got, although I saw a forum post about this here: http://windows7forums.com/windows-7-support/5069-cant-install-firefox-because-i-dont-have-necessary-permissions.html Brian - Do you know why the problem identified in this bug and in the forum post occurs with firefox? Is this a problem on our end or Microsoft's end?
Hello, I had the same problem in the past... but on my site it was a Windows security setting and not an FF bug. can you please confirm that it was the same on your site?
