Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021016 K-Meleon 0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021016 K-Meleon 0.7

The Mozilla installer completely freezes when the default drive it attempts to
install on does not exist. When one tries to press "Next" or "Browse" to try to
change the drive on which Mozilla defaulted to install on (but doesn't exist),
the installer will proceed to use 100% CPU and freeze. Drive D: on my system is
the drive in which Mozilla defaulted to install on. However, this drive does not
exist. Attempts to press the "Browse" button to change it have failed, resulting
in the SETUP.EXE taking up 100% CPU and freezing.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installer
2. When drive defaults to one that doesn't exist (drive D: for example), press
"Browse"


Actual Results:  
CPU usage rockets to 100% and the installer freezes.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should allow you to change the drive to one that does exist (C: for
example).

SETUP.EXE is the problem. I have no idea why Mozilla defaults to drive D: on my
system to install on. That drive does not exist, and I cannot attempt to change
it without Mozilla freezing.

Is that still happening in 1.5 or later?
