    AppArmor Firefox Profile Warnings (sudo)

    Hi,

    I've enabled the Firefox apparmor profile shipped with ubuntu a while ago, but I keep getting worrying messages whenever I download a file.

    As soon as the download is finished and an application is launched to view the file, I get a notification like seen in the screenshot attached. However the application opens normally and I can view the downloaded file.

    Here's are example log messages from /var/log/kern.log:
    Jan 23 10:55:07 lim kernel: [34304.735844] type=1400 audit(1295776507.177:1391): apparmor="DENIED" operation="exec" parent=21259 profile="/usr/lib/firefox-3.6.13/firefox-*bin" name="/usr/bin/sudo" pid=23656 comm="firefox-bin" requested_mask="x" denied_mask="x" fsuid=1000 ouid=0
    Jan 23 12:19:39 lim kernel: [39367.848837] type=1400 audit(1295781579.385:1392): apparmor="DENIED" operation="exec" parent=24003 profile="/usr/lib/firefox-3.6.13/firefox-*bin" name="/usr/bin/sudo" pid=25065 comm="firefox-bin" requested_mask="x" denied_mask="x" fsuid=1000 ouid=0
    Jan 23 12:22:21 lim kernel: [39529.656853] type=1400 audit(1295781741.487:1393): apparmor="DENIED" operation="exec" parent=24003 profile="/usr/lib/firefox-3.6.13/firefox-*bin" name="/usr/bin/sudo" pid=25148 comm="firefox-bin" requested_mask="x" denied_mask="x" fsuid=1000 ouid=0
    Why would firefox want to call sudo? This looks fishy to me.

    Please tell me that there's an easy explanation
