pop up, UAC warning me of Firefox making program changes
I am running Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) and every time I launch Firefox 4 I receive a pop up which asks me "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?" I realize this is a part of the UAC, which "I'm not going to disable" but why does Firefox constantly do this and is there a way (without disabling the UAC) to stop this from happening?

Right click the Firefox shortcut, go to Properties and then click the Compatibility tab. Uncheck "Run As Adminstrator".
Had the same problem and found that the only way to solve it was to delete all shortcuts and then go back to where the .exe is located and create a new shortcut and then ensure Uncheck "Run As Adminstrator" as above.
