Running Windows XP Professional 2002, sp3, AMD 64 and generally use a "user account" that doesn't have install privileges, etc. I've installed the latest version of Flash in the administrator account, but it won't update in the user account - it's not even showing up as a plug-in after my last install attempt. I read that I should log out of the user account completely when updating, but this didn't work. Flash works fine in the admin account. This has never happened before - all updates in admin account have shown up in user account. Help!

updates cause system to bog down from non-administrator accounts

My wife's account on her Windows 7 PC is a non-administrator account. When Firefox detects an update, it consistently misbehaves. It appears to consume an excessive amount of resources and the machine is almost unusable. I have to login to my administrator-level account and update Firefox. This usually resolves the issue until the next update, but today it's not. I can only seem to launch Firefox as an administrator.

Can you please fix Firefox so that it doesn't even try to update itself from a non-administrator account?

I never run into this problem when logged on as an administrator. It makes me wonder how this works on Unix/Linux when not running as root.

Trying to update to 57.0.4 on my Mac running Sierra, it asks for an Admin password to install extensions, I don't think I'm interested in extensions, but I don't think it actually updates Firefox if I say no ?

Mozilla has no true feedback page any more, so I chose to post here. I kept the "Allow Firefox to install and run studies" box unchecked since I began to use the Firefox browser (years ago). While I was researching a different issue, I found other users' posts about app.normandy. They all said that it allowed Mozilla to do what Mozilla promised not to do: run studies in violation of users' preference to opt out. Based on what I learned from those posts, I found where app.normandy was in my computer's about:config and toggled it to false. I want to thank those other users for their posts. Mozilla's explanation, also according to those posts, is that "Normandy is a collection of servers, workflows, and Firefox components that enables Mozilla to remote control Firefox clients in the wild based on precise criteria." Aside from whether or not Mozilla should be remote-controlling clients in this way, does it really consider all the diverse places in the world where its users live to be "in the wild?"

Hello Mozilla Team,

I have a small problem.

My home server was killed by a flood, so I lost my password manager (2FA & recovery code). The geo backup was unfortunately a bit older and does not contain the data for my Mozilla account. This has now locked me out of my account, but I still want to delete it. I have read the article (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/what-if-im-locked-out-two-step-authentication), but I still have the right to delete my account and have my data deleted.

I would like to know who to email to get this started, Stay healthy, thanks for the help.
