From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:0.9.8+) Gecko/20020218 BuildID: 2002021803 The (windows) installer gives you several installation options. One of them is to do a "COMPLETE" Mozilla installation. The information with this option tell us that the "program will be installed with the most common options" IMHO "complete" and "most common" is not the same. Therefore "most common" should be replaced by something that reflects the "completeness" of installation Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.install mozilla 2. 3. Actual Results: consistent wording Expected Results: inconsistent wording probably affects other OS as well, but couldn't check for that.
Very true, accepting. Must've happened when "Recommended" and "Complete" were collapsed into a single option for Mozilla. Now that there are extra hacker tools like Venkman and DOM Inspector a distinction makes a little more sense, although dropping those from a "Recommended" type would only save 350k on the download. I guess we'll stick with "Complete" and just fix the wording.

Cleaning up my old bug reports i noticed this one. I see it doesn't have a target milestone yet. Since this seems like a minor thing to change it might be nice to do it before the big 1.0 is released? (i don't know if i'm allowed to change target milestones?)
In my opinion, the default option should be to install everything. So Mozilla Setup should ask something like: --- Click the type of setup you prefer ... () Browser only: Only the browser component will be installed. () Complete: All components will be installed. () Custom: You may choose the components you want .... --- I say ``components'', not ``options''. I think this is more consistent with terminology elsewhere in Mozilla, where a ``component'' is executable code that is installed once and then never changes, while ``options'' are selections in some Prefs menu, which (can) change some data file every time I run Mozilla. I assume that ``Complete'' does, in fact, install all the components. Am I right ? If I'm not right, we need to change it to "Recommended". (I'm seeing this on Mozilla 1.1a on Win98, build 2002061104)
While you're fixing wording, maybe this would be easy to fix (or do I need to file a separate bug report ?): When I choose ``Custom'', then later Mozilla Setup informs me that the ``Personal Security Manager'' is ``for secure browsing and email; required for SSL (https) and ''. And what ? (I saw this while installing Mozilla 1.1a on Win98, build 2002061104)
I see that bug 76859 describes the same confusion on the Mac side.
Today I installed Mozilla 1.3b on Windows98. I'm still seeing the inconsistent wording the original poster complained about a year ago.
Today I installed the latest nightly version of Mozilla 1.6 on Windows XP. I'm still seeing the inconsistent wording the original poster complained about 2 years ago. I still agree with comment 3 -- the default should be "() Complete: All components will be installed.".

Comment on attachment 177882 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v1 r/sr=dveditz I slightly prefer "all options" to "all the options", but it's fine either way.

(In reply to comment #10) > I slightly prefer "all options" to "all the options", but it's fine either way. i used that wording for consistency. The "custom" [Setup Type2] option in those files also uses "all the options". Can someone check this in?
oh, this wasn't my patch, I just asked for review per comment 9 I checked this in: Checking in xpinstall/packager/build/win/mozilla/config.it; /cvsroot/mozilla/xpinstall/packager/build/win/mozilla/config.it,v <-- config.it new revision: 1.2; previous revision: 1.1 done Checking in xpinstall/packager/os2/config.it; /cvsroot/mozilla/xpinstall/packager/os2/config.it,v <-- config.it new revision: 1.21; previous revision: 1.20 done Checking in xpinstall/packager/windows/config.it; /cvsroot/mozilla/xpinstall/packager/windows/config.it,v <-- config.it new revision: 1.144; previous revision: 1.143 done
