That hardly fixes the problem.  In fact, I would hope firefox has no more 
privilege to do that than konqueror.

If you define the partition in /etc/fstab with the "user" option, e.g.:
  /dev/sda1 /windows  vfat  user,noauto 0 0

it can be mounted by anybody.  Probably you could do it with udev, somehow, 
too; since it appears no different on my system from an actual hotplugged USB 
storage partition.
