Hello Waldo54

I have a HP Pavilion with Vista Home Premium and on occasion have been asked to put in a password when it is not needed, (but not at start up) I simply press enter and it opens.

When you say you are asked to logon as administrator what program has asked that?

Need more details to assist you. Can you provide exact information on what you where doing before you got asked to logon as administrator

Walldo54, It is a bit confusing, updates to firefox are usually automatic not requiring privileges. However privileges are usually given thru the properties box. Suggest you try this "with your cursor on the desktop icon of Firefox Mozilla right click and a popup will appear on the bottom of the list click on 'properties' when the next screen opens click on the security tag highlight your user name and check what permission you have and change them to suit your needs. Hope this helps

Further info from Mozilla Support:

" Attempted to update to Firefox 3.6 on my MAC OSX 10.4 desktop. Downloaded file, dragged into applications , then couldnt replace the older file with update ...message was I have ' insufficient privileges'"

" Download a new copy of the Firefox program:
Firefox web browser | International versions: Get Firefox in your language
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. "
