Firefox always requesting permission to open any web page. Doesn't stop even with lower safety option and don't want to turn off security fully

It is possible that you run Firefox in Vista compatibility mode and maybe also as administrator.

Check that Firefox isn't set to run as Administrator.

You can open the Properties of the Firefox desktop shortcut via the right-click context menu and check the "Compatibility" tab.

Make sure all items are deselected in the "Compatibility" tab of the Properties window.

  • Privilege Level: "Run this program as Administrator" should not be selected
  • "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" should not be selected

Also check the Properties of the firefox.exe program in the Firefox program folder.

Can't access screen save software from tool bar as permission takes up entire screen. To "solve" issue, had to remove all application notifications (not recommended)
