Given that the product itself is BETA and the installer most certainly
is BETA, I'm not going to give out about it yet - though I certainly

I assume the requirement to run it once as root was some hackery to get
around some other limitation. It may be fixed by now - and will
certainly be fixed soon if not.
Let's let the Mozilla guys get a 1.0 release of Firefox out the door
before beginning the wah! ;-)
