    I get this in my boot log:
    fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2

    /dev/sda2: clean, 162667/1892352 files, 882502/7568128 blocks

    fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2

    /dev/sda3: clean, 5334/26396928 files, 2601313/105381888 blocks

    * Starting AppArmor profiles  Skipping profile in /etc/apparmor.d/disable: usr.bin.firefox


    [ OK ]

    * Setting sensors limits 
    [ OK ]


    Why is the apparmor disabled in firefox.Is this normal?

    no there will be no security problems.

    online arrmor is there to enhance security its gives sandbox kinda environment

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandbox_(computer_security)

    check jail


    click on
    step 1 ubuntu software centre

    step 2 install apparmor profile

    step 3 sudo /etc/init.d/apparmor start (this way i start apparmor)

    step 4 sudo aa-enforce /etc/apparmor.d/* (with this single command you put every profile in enforce mode)

    (this will put every thing from profile from default mode to enforce mode................. enforce mode is a mode where things work inside jail so any thing like virus/trojan other security issues........... wont effect your system even your firefox.....etc compromise.... where the default profiles are set to permissive mode it wont block but give you a log)

    step 5 sudo /etc/init.d/apparmor restart

    step 6 sudo aa-status will show status of your profiles

    I found that you only need to sudo /etc/init.d/apparmor restart (or reload) when switching from complain mode to enforce mode and vice versa, or when you have edited a profile.

    In Ubuntu Lucid to disable Firefox apparmor profile (in case you don't want it enabled anymore for whatever reason):-

    $ sudo apparmor_parser -R /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.firefox-3.5
    $ sudo ln -s /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.firefox-3.5 /etc/apparmor.d/disable/usr.bin.firefox-3.5
