Slightly Easier Alternative

If you reassign read/write permissions to all users from Get Info, quit the app and open it again, it may also be fixed. Worked for me on both Firefox and Thunderbird.

Yes, only a user with read/write permissions can clear the flag by opening the application. If the user is not an admin user, then the flag will not clear on the first open and the message will keep appearing. Another way to clear the flag for a single application is to open the app in terminal while logged in as an admin user by typing
open /Applications/
Yet another way is to have a separate applications folder in ~/, and install your applications in that location first, open them, then move them to /Applications.
