How do I change from the administrator to current user?

Every time I open Firefox, I am asked if it is ok for Mozilla to make any changes. I think it is because I cannot seem to open it as anything other than the administrator.

Re: How do I change from the administrator to current user?

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

Right-click the Firefox desktop shortcut and choose "Properties".

Make sure that 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 (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\).
