I downloaded the latest version of Firefox to install on my Mac (OS 10.5.8). When I tried to install it gave me a message saying I had "insufficient privileges". I am using the Admin account. What should I do?

  • Download a new copy of the Firefox program:
  • Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re)install.
  • Install the new version that you have downloaded.

Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data.
