Archive seems to be corrupted while it contains directory information, upon extraction (by various utilities) it dumps everything into one directory. This is bad: since some files have the same name, they get clobbered app relies on ceertain directory strcuture

I'm assuming this refers to the Win32 .zip (since OS == NT) which I've extracted successfully before, and even though spontaneous corruption would be pretty weird, I downloaded it again to make sure and extracted successfully (directory structure OK, runs fine) with WinZip 7.0. Resolving WORKSFORME.
email@example.com, just about any program that understands .zip files can extract with directory structure, but that doesn't mean that this feature is turned on by default in the app that you are using. In WinZip, the checkbox labelled "Use Folder Names" must be checked in the Extract dialog with the "Classic" interface. Look for something similar in other apps. The wizard interface of Winzip seems to work correctly by default. If you see the directory structure, it is there. It is possible that you do have a corrupt download, but any zip utility I've ever seen would complain before letting you see inside the zip. So check to make sure your app is using the directory information. If it is, it *does* work. Confirm WORKSFORME, but this one is really INVALID, it has nothing to do with Mozilla.
