When starting Mozilla or opening a new browser window I get several error
messages: No media in drive. Please insert media in Drive \Device\Harddisk\DR2.
After a few clicks on the cancel button everything works fine until I open a new
browser window.

This drive is my Zip drive on G: If I turn of the Zip drive, or insert a disk
everything works fine.

G: ist the last drive in my computer. In a previous installation of windows the
zip drive was on D: Probably this bug already existed but because G: was a HD
nothing happened.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Mozilla

Actual Results:  Error message

Expected Results:  No error message

Did you at some point have Mozilla installed on the G-drive? If so, this sounds
like it could be caused by a missing/incomplete uninstall, so some mozilla file
is still referred to on the G drive - perhaps in the registry

Mozilla never was on G-Drive. Actually I teared down the whole windows and put
it up new. All drives are new formatted and mozilla is a new installation. I
just copied my old bookmarks.
Have you saved/opend something from mozilla on drive g: after the installation ?

No. I plugged in the zip drive (which I never used with this windows
installation before) and there it was.

ehe.. it's rather: did you save something BEFORE the zip-drive was there..
If you search registry for entries regarding the G drive - does anything
interesting turn up? Does the list of latest opened files in composer reveal
anything? Are there any references to the G drive in your prefs.js?

Actually there was no drive G before. I searched the registry for G: and found
nothing. I looked at prefs.js and found no reference to drive G.

I found it. The bookmarks file (the only one copied from the old installation)
was the source of all evil.

G was my old windows drive and therefore the imported IE favourites still linked
to G instead of C. I deleted this bookmark (the new installation created another
one) and now everything works fine.

So it was not a bug!!! (Sorry)

Made it an invalid bug
