My computer has the following problem, when I start firefox the autoupdater does not work until I restart firefox with admin rights, also the Unity 3D plugin does not work if the browser is not restarted with admin rights.

With other PC's that I have, I do not need to start with admin rights manually, it does it by default.

It is APIK to have to do it manually because the notification system is a little slow when asked for admin permissions.

Is there a way to solve this? I think that a windows update cause all this mess because this wasn't like it when I first installed the applications.

What does this have to do with Chrome? :) Have you tried reinstalling FireFox and the plug-in? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Apr 7 '13 at 15:21
I have the same problem with Chrome, it does not autoupdate nor plugins are working – aljndrrr Apr 8 '13 at 11:56

Right click on icon of FF -> Select Security tab -> Select SYSTEM in Group or User names box -> Click on Edit... -> Check the check box for Full Control, Modify, Read & Execute, Read, Write. Hope this helping you.
