But if a normal user tries to install the spellchecker, it doesn't give any errors, and even says "install successful"! I suspect that it would give an error with a new install, but this spellchecker was installing over an old version, so it needed to replace the files, but the user didn't have access, but wasn't even told about the error (and the files were there, so that wasn't the problem, only that the updated files weren't able to be saved...) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual Results: Success! Expected Results: Error message as to why it couldn't install (access denied or somesuch).
Perhaps related to http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=222263. When I tried overcome the problem of 222263, I noticed that even when I get the 11+ MB of mozilla-win32-installer-sea.exe, the program goes to the network and tries to download spellchecker.xpi. I fails and suggests to "resume". Each time I resume, it increments the "Remaining" line by about 200K, so right now it says: <<00:00:00 at 0.00KB/sec (1027KB of 0 KB downloaded) ------------------------------------------- 0%>>
Bug 222263 is about the Mozilla Installer, this bug is about installing XPI files.
