firefox security patch install
recently installed firefox version 0.10 for mandrake from RPM. No problems there; when firefox started, it asked to apply a security patch for 0.10.1
The message also said that linux users need to run as root.
so I did from an xterm
It installed the patch, and all is fine.
However when I run firefox as a user, it still takes to me the update screen and somehow does not recognize that the patch has been applied.
If I do su -c firefox, then all is fine, but I want to run the application, as a user, not as root.
I have also installed firefox from the tgz in my home area. All is fine here, except that it does not see the plugins already installed in /usr/lib area. In addition, I have to manually create the shortcut, while RPM install does it for mr.
My personal preference is to install from RPM as it automatically puts it in the K panel; all plug in paths work automatically w/o much hand holding
any possible solutions for
1. why firefox run as user (either thru xterm, or shortcut) does not see the patch but run as root does?
