I successfully upgraded FW to 126.96.36.199 some time ago (when I upgraded CS5 to CS5.5), but I've been experiencing a couple strange behaviors ever since. I'm on a pc using Vista.
(1) FW now requires admin permission whenever I launch it. No other program in the suite does that. It's an annoyance that I can live with, but would rather not have to click CONTINUE every time. I tried setting the program to run as Administrator, but it made no difference.
(2) The most annoying issue is that 'Open a Recent item' list is empty every time. Oh it retains my list if i don't shut off my computer. But if I do shut down my computer, FW's recent item list is empty at the next launch. I used to use this feature a lot for picking up where I left off the day before. Now I have to not only search for the document, but also seek the drive and folder since that information is not retained either.
Is there a solution to either of these problems? Maybe they are related.
