I had previously installed the Complete install of Mozilla 0.9.9. Yesterday I download the nightly and select the Browser Only install. However it doesn't appear to make any attempt to uninstall the non-Browers components. Still have Mail & News and all the other junk. I assume I could manually uninstall all of Mozilla and then install Browser Only. But I'd like to be able to have the Mo installer do it.
I admit the UI is confusing, but honestly we have no realistic plans to fix this. We have no uninstall for individual components (RFE's filed), so if we find an old mail we must upgrade it or you quite likely wouldn't be able to launch. The final page of the install does show that the mail component is "(Required)" even though you chose browser-only, giving the alert a chance to install to a different directory. Maybe someday when we have component uninstalls (which no one so far has shown an interest in writing) we can reconsider this improvement. Marking this WONTFIX instead of setting the target to Future so we don't provide false hopes.
