Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to run browser by double click on shortcut icon
2.
3.

Actual Results:  received above error message every time I try to run mozilla

Expected Results:  should have loaded browser

This happens on all daily builds of mozilla after September 13.
Did you install in a clean directory or over a previous install?
Comments from reporter:

At first I installed over previous version. Then I uninstalled mozilla and
reinstalled. 
No difference, same error. I am reluctant to wipe directories as I do not wish
to lose 
bookmarks and other preferences.

If uninstalling is insufficient, please suggest what else you recommend I do.
Mannie, 

Bookmarks and so on are all stored in yout profile.  You can delete
Mozilla's install directory with no fear.
Comments from reporter:

I uninstalled and then removed mozilla.org directory (and all subdirectories).
Problem is 
now fixed. I am running build 2001091803.

------------------------------------

Resolving invalid.  The release notes clearly say to install into a clean dir
precisely to avoid these sort of crashes.
