All of a sudden I have to OK administrator access for Mozilla?

    I've been using Vista for a few weeks now. Last night, whilst browsing
    the web on Mozilla, I got a message saying "need to restart this program
    using administrator access" or something like that. Now every time I
    start Mozilla it UAC asks if it can start under administrator control.
    What changed, and how do I stop this prompt without shutting off UAC?

    Install any plugin/add-on? I've seen this behavior in browsers when an
    add-on cannot function properly without admin privileges (which is
    dangerous). Disable any active ones in the browser settings.

    Best of Luck,

    No new ones, but I think I got some updates recently. additionally I
    installed Thunderbird beta plus it's calendar plugin (lightning) . I
    uninstalled all the plugins and still get the issue. I'm going to
    uninstall and reinstall the browser.

    Ok, that seems to have done the trick. Just one of those things I guess
