Run as administrator

So wtf is going on where now you need to launch a browser as
administrator to install iprint printers or upload drivers, manage
printers, etc etc? Why would something like this be done?

Dealing with printers, users, etc etc can be tough *enough* w/o having
to throw the mix of running the browser as administrator into the mix.

Anyone else running into this & have a workaround, BESIDES running the
browser as administrator?

So my response to sisml's comment is...

The machine I've been seeing this on is running 5.86

Re: Run as administrator

Have you tried adding your print server to the list of IE trusted sites, as mentioned in the article?

I am fairlyl certain that I use Firefox for all iPrint management
except for Printer Profiles. I don't Run As Administrator with
Firefox. The exception is Printer Profiles - to create those for
Windows 7 I need to use IE and Run As Administrator. I wish is wasn't
necessary...but...

I did, using a wildcard, and that seems to have helped. Wonder why
they changed what they did requireing this. It never used to be that
way.
