So wtf is going on where now you need to launch a browser as
administrator to install iprint printers or upload drivers, manage
printers, etc etc? Why would something like this be done?

Dealing with printers, users, etc etc can be tough *enough* w/o having
to throw the mix of running the browser as administrator into the mix.

Anyone else running into this & have a workaround, BESIDES running the
browser as administrator?
