From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0rc3) Gecko/20020523 BuildID: 2002052305 I have a feeling I know what the problem is. In the package contents, in the MacOS folder, after installing the CZ XPI, there is a document there called XPICleanup something. Well, the XPI downloads and quits Mozilla and then I launch it again and it says that I need to restart due to the XPI installation. All right, so I hit okay and the classic layer starts up and quits. I did this ten times then restarted my computer and it still happened. That's when I decided to go into the package contents. In that textfile, I noticed the path to a file, chatzilla.old. I deleted this file manually and then deleted the text document. Mozilla opened fine. Then it struck me, the application XPI cleanup must be to automatically delete items whos paths are in that text file. Double click the app and sure enough, classic mode opens. What you need it to compile a new version of the app. Maybe you made it under X.0.0 and it no longer works or something... Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: in description Actual Results: classic mode opens and I cannot start mozilla Expected Results: deleted the path in the file
Greg F., so you install RC3 (which contains Chatzilla), and then install the Chatzilla XPI?
Summary: mozilla does not start after installing XPI's → Mozilla does not start after installing XPI's
Yeah, my friend said I needed to type the xpi url into the browser. I don't know all that much about mozilla. But also to add to this, an OS X native app should never have to launch a classic app...
Greg F., please give us the exact URI you typed, and then list the exact steps you took that caused the problem. It will be easier to confirm that way. Thanks.
This is what I think he did: 1. Installed Mozilla with the Installer, and did a minimal installation or custom without ChatZilla checked. 2. Tried to get on #MozillaZine, and wanted ChatZilla 3. I told him to type this into the Location field: ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.0rc3/mac-xpi/chatzilla.xpi The expected behavior was to Install ChatZilla.
Jake, Mozilla for Mac OS X doesn't offer any installation customization. All installations include Chatzilla by default.
No response for 8 months. Resolving Invalid since description doesn't make sense, in that there is no installer on Mac OS X, and Chatzilla is included in the build by default.
