Drag-n-Drop install requires higher privilege

When installing Firefox, you download and mount the .dmg file, you then copy Firefox.app to your applications folder. This was failing for me, saying that there was not enough privilege to complete operation. (This may have been because another user had done the previous Firefox install...)

After mounting the .dmg (double-click it) I did the copy from the command-line:

sudo cp -R /Volumes/Firefox/Firefox.app /Applications
