Details

The Profile Manager has a lot of buttons that do not function properly.

1. On Mac, if you delete the registry file and launch apprunner, you cannot
create a new file (or even continue with the default profile "mozProfile")
because the "Next" button does not do anything.

2. On Win98 and Linux (Profile Manager launched by using "apprunner
-ProfileManager"), the "New" button does not work, makind it impossible to
create a new profile.
These problems began with build 1999080408 on all 3 platforms

Gayatri, on Bijal's machine we saw a javascript error at line 26 of
navigationStart.xul.

Ditto for NT.  Here's the javascript error:

Object must be of type NSLocation
URL: file:///Y|/mozilla/dist/WIN32_D.OBJ/bin/res/profile/navigationStart.xul
LineNo: 26

I can't do anything until this bug is fixed because I have already deleted my
moz directory.

Changed the syntax of location.replace to comply with the new syntax
location.href (seems to be the effect of Vidur's checkins yesterday)in all
relevant files. It works fine now. Marking it fixed.

Verified Fixed with 08/05 builds.

As location.replace is widely used, it would probably be better to support it
also, along with location.href. Reopening the bug and assigning it to Vidur.

Fix checked in on 8/5/1999. Both location.replace() and location.href can be
used, though the former does not add a new history entry for the new URL.
location.replace() was broken by my change yesterday, but has since been fixed.
