User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020513 Netscape/7.0b1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020513 Netscape/7.0b1

I went to the Mozilla releases page to the 1.1 section and followed the link to
download the rpm files for Mozilla 1.1. When installing, rpm warned that the new
rpm was older than the one already installed. The Help->About Mozilla has the
version as Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020513
Netscape/7.0b1

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

3.


Expected Results:  
The rpm files should have been for Mozilla 1.1

The release page takes you here:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.1/Red_Hat_7x_RPMS/RPMS/i386/

Is that where you downloaded from?  I haven't actually used the RPMs, but the
SRPM is fine.

By default, rpm does not "warn" you about old packages.  It simply will not
install them.  Are you sure they were actually installed?  What version did you
have before?

try
rpm -qi mozilla

Actually the version of rpm I am using does warn about trying to install an
older version. You can use --force or --oldpackage to install anyway. But that
is not the subject.

I was mistaken about the wrong version being in the rpm. Apparently my prefs.js
file had user_pref("general.useragent.override set.

Sorry.
