When click on firefox on my desktop that a message appears to ask me if I will allow firefox to make changes to my computer. It happens every time. each page is also all pixelated and barely visible. the Explorer IS NOT to do THIS.

Make sure that Firefox is not set to run as administrator.
Right click on the desktop Firefox shortcut and choose "Properties".

Make sure that all items are disabled in the tab "Compatibility" in the Properties window.

  • Privilege level: "Run this program as Administrator" should not be selected
  • "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" must not be selected

Also check the firefox.exe program properties in the program Firefox (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\) folder.

  • Why windows will ask permission to allow Skype to make changes to this computer?

    Original title: open Skype with windows firewall 7.

    When Skype (ver.5.2.60.113) try to open, windows 7 application firewall to allow Skype to make changes to this computer. All Windows Firewall settings are configured to allow Skype. I even made a new rule for "ProgramFiles (x 86) \Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" to be allowed in the inbound and outbound rules, but nothing helps. Is this a bug or a dark environment. I think it happened since Skype last updated.

  • Lately everytime I open firefox I get the window «do you want this program to make changes to your computer...» »

    Hello

    I would be so grateful to know how to fix t his, because it's really getting on my nerves.
    
    I have windows 7 pro 64 bit. I mostly always use firefox. Whenever i opened a  new browser, I never got hit with the windows badge and "Do you want this program to make changes to your computer...." or something to that effect. YOu who have windows 7 know what I mean. Of course I click yes, but I NEVER had to do this before. I don't know what changed, what might have happened. I had to have help with some software unrelated to firefox and someone had remote work on my notebook, but he should not have changed browser settings. It is really irritating me to now end to always open the browser now and have to hear that annoying thing and the badge.
    

    My other browsers IE and chrome do not do this.

    How can I fix this? It was never the case before for years.
    

    Thank you thank you very much in advance. I can't use this browser if that's going to happen, he finds himself on my nerves.

  • User account control asking repeatedly for permission to let Java 6 update 16 make changes to my computer. There is no function "remember this answer", so I can't stop repeating. Anyone else having this problem? __

    • You have problems with programs
    • Error messages

    Hi Jniles,

    Thank you for visiting Microsoft Answers.

    Do you have connected to your computer as an administrator?

    User Account Control (UAC) notifies you before changes are made to your computer that require administrator-level permissions. The default UAC notifies you when programs try to make changes to your computer, but you can change how often UAC notifies you.

    Open user account control settings by clicking the Start button, then Control Panel. In the search box, type uac, and then click change user account control settings.
