From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311 BuildID: 20020403 NOTE: This bug is most likely a duplicate of 135379, but I saw on ther starter page that you WANTED duplicate bugs, so here it is... System: Win98SE IE 5.5 Visual Studio 6.0 (Visual C++ & Visual BASIC) I had the released version of 0.9.7, and decided to upgrade to the latest build (0.9.9). The installation was done as "Custom", and I unchecked Mail & News / Chatzilla. After successfully installing (mozilla-win32-0.9.9-installer.exe), the browser let me know that the build was more than three weeks old, and urged me to download the new version if I wanted to enter bugs (I figured what the hell). The browser took me to the FTP site, and I chose to download the network installer (mozilla-win32-installer.exe) dated 4/3. Since it was getting late, I ran the installer and went to bed (~10:50pm PST). When I woke up this morning, I found that the installer had completed, but that the browser had not correctly launched. The interface was completely gray (the title bar and gray background were visible, but there was no menu, no document interface and no toolbar). There were some bits of code in the interface ("<--menu: " and some other...I didn't get a screenshot, unfortunately, but I hadn't had my coffee yet). Repeatedly launching the browser ended in the same result. I ran the network installer again, and it started downloading from scratch (the new build was up), so I stopped it and went to the \Program Files\Mozilla.org\Mozilla\Setup folder and ran the setup from there. It redownloaded xpcom.xpi, but ended in the same result (the gray interface). I then tried to rerun the 0.9.9 installer, but THAT left me with the gray interface, too (but no text this time). Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install 0.9.7 no talkback(full installer, no mail/news or chatzilla) 2. Install 0.9.9 talkback(full installer, no mail/news or chatzilla) 3. Install 20020403 talkback(net installer, no mail/news or chatzilla) Actual Results: Unable to repro, since I lost the setup files. Expected Results: Ummm...it should have launched correctly(?) I ended up uninstalling (via Add/Remove)...unfortunately, this removed the net installer files, so I couldn't repro. I then ran a "clean" 0.9.9 install, which worked fine. As a thought, I suspect that the build files might have been in the process of being replaced while I downloaded, and the installer didn't notice the difference(?).
It did the samething to me. I just uninstalled and reinstalled it and it workd.
me too win98 with 2002040403, deleting compontent.reg did not help, removing everything and a new install prevented a mirc use instead of chatzilla.
Me, too. See my comment on bug 135379.
you need to completely uninstall before you update to latest builds. see also bug 135222. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 135222 ***
