User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 During install, got warning message: Warning: MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME not set. Post-install, values in /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla were wrong: moz_libdir=/usr/local/lib/mozilla-1.2.1 MRE_HOME=/usr/local/lib/mre/mre-1.2.1 The install did not create those directories. Everything was in /usr/local/mozilla. A KDE user who docked /usr/local/lib/mozilla/mozilla to the panel using a special button (non-KDE app), got a whole bunch of error messages in .xsession-errors when invoking mozilla from the panel: Invalid entry (missing '=') at /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla:39 Invalid entry (missing '=') at /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla:41 Invalid entry (missing '=') at /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla:48 Same KDE user added a .htmlviewrc file containing: #!/bin/bash X11BROWSER=/usr/local/mozilla/mozilla export X11BROWSER and could then run mozilla by invoking htmlview without getting those errors. Root, using gnome, did not get the error messages when invoking mozilla from the command line. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-1.2.1-sea.tar.gz. 2. As root, extract using tar, into /root/mozilla. 3. As root, execute the file /root/mozilla/mozilla-installer/mozilla-installer. 4. Close the mozilla window that auto-starts. 5. As non-root kde user, run mozilla first from the command line, and then using htmlview. Actual Results: See above details. Expected Results: Either correct the values for moz_libdir and MRE_HOME, or create the directories which correspond to those variables. Also, suppress MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME message by figuring out what it should be, maybe. Here's part of what was in the install.log file: Mozilla Navigator ----------------- ** initInstall: 0 ** communicatorFolder: /usr/local/mozilla/ ** File to delete: /usr/local/mozilla/components/libmozucth.so ** ERROR (-214): Deleting file: /usr/local/mozilla/components/libmozucth.so ** File to delete: /usr/local/mozilla/components/libpsmglue.so ... ** addDirectory() returned: 0 ** dirCreate() returned: 0 [1/294] Installing: /usr/local/mozilla/components/libucvmath.so [2/294] Installing: /usr/local/mozilla/libprldap50.so ... ** performInstall() returned: 0 Install completed successfully -- 01/04/2003 16:17:37
I believe these vars are preliminary support for MRE- which is not incorporated into Linux yet- should not cause problems running currently

*** Bug 200274 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Can I suggest placing a comment in the startup scripts MozillaFirebird, firebird, and mozilla to the effect that the moz_libdir and MRE_HOME variables are or are not needed for specific OSs?
This (not updating moz_libdir and MRE_HOME) also occurs when you try to install into a more local directory such as /home/username/mozilla.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11pre) Gecko/2008070401 SeaMonkey/2.0a1pre Current trunk nightlies have no installer on Linux. /usr/local/seamonkey/seamonkey exists and runs correctly AFAICT, even when started from non-root login. Its contents are fixed before distribution. Resolving WORKSFORME. If you want to REOPEN, please mention in which recent version you see the bug, and include clear steps to reproduce.
