The main difference here is that most programs try to install to Program
Files, which requires administrative privileges for the benefit of
protection against later tampering. Firefox extensions (by default) end
up in the users home directory.

I am not sure if it actually does, but the Tor installer should be able
to install and run as user just fine, once you point it to a location
where you can actually write to.
