According to this bug should
be fixed upstream (for 1.1.x only?), but even with firefox-1.0.6-1.1.fc4 I still
can't add anything as normal user (never tried as root).

Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2005-07-21 20:36:49 UTC
This is fixed in rawhide, not fc4.  You need firefox-1.1 or greater to see this
fix.  I am planning on backporting it to fc4, but that will take some time.
