Lately I'm getting either an error from TFF "We can't update your browser because you don't have adequate privileges" . . . or, when I tried to drag the new TFF image into Applications and drop it, it says the same thing . . . "can't complete the transaction."
So, I "googled" it and found a conversation on Apple Discussions where a gent said, "If I trash TFF first I can install the upgrade." So, that's what I did. But, this is pointing to a "larger" problem . . . and the "memory" is sketchy on what I did to not be seen as "executive" admin of record . . . . Somewhere in the "disaster" of "educating" this new/old cpu, and the damage to various installed systems, I think what I had to do was a fresh install of 10.5 . . . and then I could use migration asst to move all my files over . . . but, in there was a "profile"??? as well?? Anyway, after that I had two "users" who were "admin" . . . and, I trashed one of the accounts (don't know which one) . . . but seems like the one I trashed was "super-admin"??? I set up the possibly "new" account as "admin" and passwords were the same . . . but on the log in page it shows "Johnny B Good's Computer (2)" . . . where before there was never any number after the "Computer" . . . .
Is there any way to get rid of that number, and/or be recognized as "super-admin" so that TFF will let me drag/drop the updates?? Or, too complicated . . . easier to just trash the old and then drop in the new? Obviously there isn't a whole lot of new software coming down the pike for 10.5, but . . . I feel like my OS should offer me "adequate privileges" . . . because, I'm its daddy . . . .
