User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030213 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030213 Executing mozilla.exe from a location outside of installation directory causes Mozilla to abort execution without any error messages. This causes problems with the double-clicking of files associated with Mozilla -- the browser cannot be invoked to view the desired files. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Under DOS Prompt, change to the Mozilla installation directory ("C:\Program Files\Mozilla.org\Mozilla" by default) 2. Execute "mozilla.exe" 3. Notice that Mozilla is started as expected. 4. Exit Mozilla completely (including Quick Launch) 5. Under DOS Prompt, change to any other location other than the installation location (eg: C:\) 6. Execute "C:\Program Files\Mozilla.org\Mozilla\mozilla.exe" Actual Results: Mozilla is not started. Expected Results: Mozilla should be started, showing a new browser window. I believe the symptoms started appearing about a week ago, but I never tried to track down the specific cause until today. This bug severly affects the usability of Mozilla, because it nullifies the file association feature of Windows for Mozilla.
