Did you install this build over an older build? You shouldn't do that.. Try to create a new profile for this build (using the profilemanager) and / or remove mozilla and reinstall it again. (Make sure to backup your Mail and other important personal stuff if you delete a profile) thanks
I had the same problem yesterday when I uninstalled and old build (1.1 a) and installed a new nightly build. It did not help to make a new profile, so remove the install folder (C:\Program Files\mozilla.org\) and reinstall and it should work.

Yes I did only update on older version, so that is the problem. Will it be upgradeable in the future ?
Try to open up the window explorer and find the mozilla directory. Then make a backup copy of all of the file under the folder "mozilla.org" to the desktop. This can be done with copy and paste. Then delete all of those files in the mozilla.org directory expect the folder, "plugin". Try that and see if that help with your problem.
To comment #5, your suggestion helped.
Yeah, comment 5 is the solution Too bad i removed all my plugins... :-(
Oh no! The plugin was removed. :-) It shouldn't be too hard to take it out of the recycle bin. Or copy the plugin directory over from the backup where the plugin is found if you made the backup. I read the Moz startup page when I installed the Moz, it commented that the effective way to do the upgrade is to make a backup copy of the Mozilla.org directory to a safe place. Then delete all of the stuffs inside the mozilla.org folder except the plugin. So, I followed that suggestion and haven't have had that much problem. :-) Since you said yours work, so you would need to update the bug to "Resovled as Fix". I don't have the authority for that.
Is it really fixed ? Should'nt it be upgradeable ? You might have to live with theese things in a daily build, but when it gets into a release I dont think it is acceptable ? I suspect this has to do with the fixing of bug 12911
My understanding is that Mozilla is only a development browser. I have no idea what does Netscape, Konqueror and other browsers do with this Mozilla packages. Maybe you can write a special installer to make this upgrade to work well? :-) But your point is well taken and I'll accept that.
If you used the standard 'wizard-style' installer to upgrade Mozilla, the installer should have prompted you to delete the old version first. Was this not the case?
No I was not prompted to remove old version. I use to upgrade mozilla once a week, and this is the first time I have had any problem at all. I Do believe the problem has to do with the fixing of bug 12911, the night before. The bug was about rewriting paths to among other things bookmarks.
