Firefox 2: Failure in Chrome Registration

For what seems like months Firefox 2 has been giving me the unhelpful error message 3 times on startup:
Firefox could not install this add-on due to Failure in Chrome registration. Please contact the author about this problem.
but I've been too lazy to deal with it. A simple search turned up the fix, which is restart Firefox, but, when restarting, right click the Firefox icon and "Run as Administrator."

Following restarts don't need this.
