    Why doesn't Firefox or any other web browser trigger UAC?

    Browsers do not need admin rights to work.

    I wish the Firefox updater would trigger UAC. On a limited user account the only way to update it is to download an updated full install and run that.

    xxJackxx, via Options > Advanced > Update tab, if the Use a background service to install updates is unchecked, it will trigger UAC prior to updating Firefox.
