Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:37.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/37.0
Build ID: 20150415140819

Steps to reproduce:

Running Windows 7 Professional
Installed Thunderbird to a location (possibly drive) other than default.  Mine is installed on E:\, where C:\ is my OS drive.
Pinned Thunderbird to task bar
Updated Thunderbird


Actual results:

After the update, the shortcut pinned to the taskbar was replaced with one pointing to Thunderbird's default install location (C:\Program Files (x86)\...).  This shortcut fails because that's not where Thunderbird is actually installed.


Expected results:

The shortcut should not be altered, or if it must be (change in launch arguments, etc), use the actual install directory instead of the default one.  I have to unpin and repin Thunderbird to my task bar after every update.
