Can you post the error you receive when you try to run it as a regular user?

there's no error, it's more like a problem 'you don't have permission', but it doesn't give any announcements
I wasn't first in users group, but i put myself in and that surely doesn't give any help.
i need hint, because this is not big problem and i don't have experience with these kind

Probably you should set the permissions to 755

Did you change the permissions recursively for the Firefox directory?
