    running firefox in protected mode

    I wonder if someone is running firefox in protected mode and what is the trick for it?
    After setting protected mode firefox first asks for confirmation to run firefox.exe, then claims that it is running already and quits so I had to revert integrity to medium.

    thank you

    o.k. stupid mistake, fixed
