A workaround that the port could use is given on that page....
"If Firefox 18.104.22.168 is installed on a multi-user system in a location
which is not writable by users, Firefox must be run once by a privileged
user. If this is not desirable, an empty file must be created in the
<install-directory>/extensions/talkback at mozilla.org/chrome.manifest"
