WorksForMe using FizzillaMach/2003022103. AquaMoz download/installation does
begin, and Cancel works as expected.

Lorin, can you still reproduce this problem using a current nightly build? If
so, can you reproduce this problem using another Mozilla user profile?

Reporter, XPI installs were very broke on OS X until very recently, can you
download a nightly build and see if you're still having a problem with (a) the
cancel button and (b) the theme install?

Seems better, though I crashed while testing this fix:
Begin to download, cancel, re-download same theme, crash

hmm... crash.... bad... i'm going to reopen for the moment until that can be
tracked down (or the blame can be put on a different bug)

When you crashed did talkback popup, and if so do you have a talkback id?

multiple visits to the following url & install attempts isn't crashing me...

20030326 Trunk build

Lorin, a talkback id or crash log
(~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/mozilla-bin.clrash.log) would be wonderful

The crash thing should probably be a new bug...

Yes, please file the crash as a separate bug.

bug 199793 filed on the crash (i was waiting to look at the stack trace to see
it its just a dupe of one of the other outstanding XPI bugs but didn't get
around to bugging anyone for it)... resolving this as WFM per comment 3
