Description

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010913
BuildID:    2001091303

sorry for the unexplicit title, but I don't have found better summary.
I was on Bugzilla helper page. It started with copy/paste not functioning, then
arrows and home/end not functioning. I had to submit the bug and it didn't
accept the fact that I already had selected the combo boxes (component, system,
etc...). I struggled 5 minutes playing with show bugs for this component then
reselecting and/or changing selection. It finaly worked.
Problem start to appear on new windows on same adress. I will reboot

Reproducible: Didn't try

Actual Results:  Mozilla gets 'crazy'

Can you please retest this with a current trunk nightly build. Thanks. 
Reporter: You can download the latest build here:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/

Specifically, the version for your OS is:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/mozilla-win32-talkback.zip

Also, be sure to delete your old Mozilla directories before installing the new
build :).

Thanks, I know :) Just that I can't update my browser every day, at least not at
my work :) My version was only 7 days old :)
By the way a question: If I use w2k deinstall for Mozilla before reinstalling
the new Mozilla build, will I loose my personal settings?


Jerome: Uninstalling Mozilla shouldn't mess with your settings, as your settings
are stored elsewhere (C:\Documents and Settings\, usually). If you have any
doubt, you can always backup for bookmarks file before uninstalling, for peace
of mind.

As you noticed, if you use the Mozilla-installer, then Mozilla is listed under
Add/Remove Programs. However, I actually find it more convenient to use the
"mozilla-win32-talkback.zip" (linked above). There, I just manually delete the
old Mozilla directory in Explorer, and unzip the new file (that's all there is
to it).

Also, marking WFM with 2001092208 on Win2k. Please reopen this bug if Mozilla is
still wonky for you after trying a more recent build.

PS s/loose/lose ;-)
