When firefox needs to update on windows he asks for admin permission. That is annoying every time and the problem is that normal users can't update firefox. You need the admin password to do this.

Hey @emi_ff

Thanks for submitting this post to the Mozilla Connect community! It reads more like general feedback versus an actionable idea for a new feature. If this is the case, let me know and I'll gladly move it to the Discussions forum where feedback goes. Or if you want it posted in the Ideas section, please take a minute to add any extra details and I'll update the status to "New idea."

I've set DisableAppUpdate in about:config to false but it still states:

I think this was associated to a vulnerability, but since I don't use Windows, I'm not sure.

Firefox should do like Zoom app which has an option to allow auto update(non-admin user can do) when admin install the app the first time.
