Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705)
Build Identifier: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.1/mozilla-win32-1.1-installer.exe

I was running Mozilla 1.1, and while doing so, was running multiple skin 
installs.  Mozilla locked and crashed, and refuses to start anymore.  At 
bootup, it loads the agent, but Navigator won't start.  If I kill the agent 
and attempt to start Mozilla again, it hangs at the splash screen.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install multiple skins simultaneously.
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
Mozilla crashes.  Afterword, it refuses to start.  

Expected Results:  
Installed all of the skins.

I was in the Default theme, and the Netscape QF agent was TB12512787Y.

Uninstall/Reinstall doesn't help.  Time to go clear directories and hack 
through the registry with a sickle.

Stephen, can you retreive Talkback data please TB12512787Y ?
the incident ID is older than 30 days, therefore it doesn't exist in the
talkback database (we only archive a month's worth, sorry)

Christopher, do you still crash using latest nightly build ?
