From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.7+) Gecko/20011221 BuildID: 2001122103 XPInstall uses everything after the ? in a url for it's own nefarious purposes. This makes it difficult to load a .xpi from a url that has parameters like a bugzilla attachment. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load the url 2. Note the missing parameters in the name. 3. Click install. 4. Look at the install.log and note the -207 error Actual Results: The install fails because the xpinstaller could not open the url. Expected Results: Moziila should have flawlessly installed a shiny new kinda, almost, sort of but probably not, bug free spell checker.
