Can't download new 5.0.1 version don't "have authorization"... I own the computer!
When I access Firefox I get a message that I'm no longer protected against attacts - I need the new Firefox 5.0.1. So I download it and when I go to install it I'm denied because I "don't have authorization for some components". I own the computer if I don't have access who does?
What do I need to do to access the new program?

If you have problems with updating or with the permissions then easiest is to download the full version and trash the currently installed version to do a clean install of the new version.
Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the DMG file to the desktop
- Firefox 5.0.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html
- Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re-)install
- Install the new version that you have downloaded
