What about running Firefox with admin rights and try?

No, Firefox blocked this add-on not locally - it's blocked from FF side with user left with no choises...

Yes, I've read. But any option "appear" when you run FF with elevated rights?

And this contributes how  ::)

It doesn't.
That's Kenny's trick.

I know that, it is just so childish at every opportunity even if it really isn't an issue with firefox as confirmed by RoboForm to crash firefox because it was using its own build of Gecko SDK.

YoKenny just sees firefox and all reasoning or trying to help the OP goes out of the window. Every time it is just so predictable, bl**dy immature and tiresome; you would expect more from someone of more mature years. I guess not, no changing this leopard's spots.

No, it's not chnaging anything, just the same info it is blocked for security reasons. I think ther is no workaround in this case, only updated version of EasyPass will fix this issue.

You went to Prague didn't you ?
If so did you gather any contacts you could email (as I wouldn't be sitting back waiting) ?

You may wish to look at version 8.0.1, Firefox.  Bug fixes include a fix for RoboForm.  Suggest looking at 'What's New in Firefox' section:  http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/8.0.1/releasenotes/

This version was released November 21, 2011.

This does not look like a major fix of build; rather, it looks like a relatively minor fix, so no major update is required.  Secunia PSI does not call this when a system scan is made on a host system running Secunia PSI v. 2.0.0.2003.

Merely updating to FF 8.0.1 may fix your problem.

This is one of the reasons I prefer to use FF.  They seem to have a rapid response to user complaints.  I do not use any version of RoboForm, so, updating to version 8.0.1 is probably not needed by those whom do not use it.

The latest version of Firefox has the following changes:

* Fixed Windows startup crash caused by RoboForm versions older than 7.6.2.

They reacted faster this time... My FF 8.0 still says "Up to date", so I have downloaded update manually. But toolbar remains disabled with no options to re-enable... So, they updated FF but haven't removed add-on block from their list of bad add-ons...
