This bug may have gone away with new license file that is included

Yes, I added a couple of lines at the bottom, purposely :o)  This is still a bug

This has been temporarily worked around by adding a line in the License file.  
Moving off to M20.

Samir, the blank lines you inserted have disappeared, so again I can't read the 
last line of the license.

I think this is a blocker. Legally, if I can't read the whole of a license, how 
am I supposed to accept its terms?

I was talking about the commercial license in my comments above, I believe.  At 
any rate, it's worth it no note that this is just a placeholder license.  
Someone from the mozilla community should supply a license they want displayed 
if different from the MPL.  If we find that this is in fact the license that 
should be displayed I'll toss in the extra line at the end.  Thanks for

Calling Mitchell ... Does a Mozilla user need to read and accept the MPL license 
in order to install Mozilla, or can we get rid of that blasted license screen 
altogether in non-commercial builds?

I think we can elimintae this in the mozilla installer.  should we update this
bug to reflect that or file a new one.

"elimintae this in the mozilla installer"  I'm not clear what you want to 
eliminate?  The license dialog?  It is non-trivial since the ``Show Dialog'' 
feature was cut for the Mac installer.  :(

See bug 51499.

Is the license only appearing on macos? [I'm trying to run through the win32 
installer and all open installer bugs] I don't see the license on win32.

perhaps we could replace it with a readme or something for mozilla builds.  In
the case that we keep the dialog (with either a license or a readme) then we
would need to fix the problem of not ebing able to see the last line of the
scrolling content.

mitchell says we need this.

If we need the license, then is the current version the correct one (MPL 1.1 I 

Comment 18

If we need the license, then why isn't it present in the Windows and Linux 
installers? That's a pretty striking omission.

Comment 19

It *is* in fact present in the Linux installers.  :o)

Comment 20

Samir, yes, MPL 1.1 is our current license.  It seems to only be missing from
the mozilla windows installer.

Comment 21

See last comment by Asa.  It appears that the Win32 mozilla installer needs to 
display MPL 1.1.

Since the license is required, this bug remains "Can't see bottom half of the
last line of EULA." This problem is still present in recent installers.
Changing obsolete M20+ milestones to closest equivalent, "Future"
Target Milestone: M20 → Future
Bringing on radar. Isn't this a dup of a bugscape bug (or vice versa)? If so 
let's close that one and keep the public one.

Work-around is to put an extra line in the file... way easier and safer than any
fix in the installer itself.
