Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. rm -rf /usr/lib/mozilla 2. rm -rf /var/lib/mozilla 3. apt-get install mozilla Actual Results: Now, each time I try to install it, appears a message saying: Updating mozilla chrome registry...mv: cannot stat '/usr/lib/mozilla/components/*.dat': File or directory does not exist mv: cannot stat '/usr/lib/mozilla/chrome/*.rdf': File or directory does not exist done. This happens with 4 packages: - mozilla-browser (1.3-4) - mozilla-mailnews (1.3-4) - mozilla-psm (1.3-4) - mozilla-xft (1.3-4) When I try to launch mozilla, it just exits. Expected Results: Mozilla should have installed correctly and had rebuilt the chrome registry.
Um.. You uninstalled Mozilla and that did not remove the chrome registry? Is that part of a different package? It looks to me like you just manually deleted part of a package that the Mozilla packages in question depend on and now the apt script running during the install is confused. But none of that has anything to do with the Mozilla installer, in any case -- you're not using it. At no point does Mozilla say anything like "Updating mozilla chrome registry" during install or operation, so that message is from the install script. So this is either a Debian packaging problem or a problem caused by removing files that the Debian Mozilla packages need without uninstalling the relevant package.
