I needed just one thing from this add-on: load some text from disk and highlight it once I change a page. This simply fails for me on Vista with UAC enabled.

At first, I couldn't save Preferences at all unless I figured to specify the highlights directory. It was blank.

But then again, it can't save highlights and consequently, doesn't highlight anything on page reload. Here's a relevant fragment from the error.log:

saveHighlite: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsILocalFile.create]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://highlights/content/serialize.js :: anonymous :: line 142" data: no]

As I understand, this snippet is what causes it to fail:

file.create(file.NORMAL_FILE_TYPE, 0666);

Author, do you mean that I need to start Firefox with admin privileges on Vista?
