When installing Mozilla 0.9.9 using the full installer package, my system didn't have enough space in /usr/local. The installer correctly reported this. But then I went back and selected a different partition to install (/software) where there was plenty of space, and it still reported I only had 9 MB avaialable space. After cleanup in /usr I could install in /software without such a warning, so it looks like the diskspace check always looks in /usr, not in the chosen installation directory.
Is it possible that your /tmp partition was also low on space? The installation process also writes a bunch of stuff there. I believe this can be redirected using TMPDIR. Or did the error message specifically say /usr was out of space?
David Jansen: can you still reproduce this with a recent Mozilla version (like 1.0RC3)? If not, mark this bug "worksforme"
Just tried it with 1.0RC3 and no more errors. Thanks!!
