User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; yie6) Build Identifier: Firebird does not unzip or install properly... Stays in "unzipped" folder. (Sure, I know I can noodle around and make it install in the "program files" folder... but I don't have the time to deal with it on a work computer) Cannot uninstall it cleanly! Your website does not have enough information about uninstalling Mozilla Firebird. WinXP uninstaller will not work... or even see it. Now I cannot get rid of the file associations to Firebird? Also, after deleting all the components I can find,(I know there are more... where?) WinXP still thinks Firebird is my default browser. Can't seem to get IE to become default browser again? As for why I uninstalled it in the first place... Too many problems/missing features as in: Cannot right-click and create a shortcut of a page to the desktop. Does not have a "full screen" mode or button for same in topbar. No toolbar button for opening the favorites menu on left... Just a keyboard shorcut. My favorite IE shortcut: "control-N" for a new window does not work like IE (clones current window)... just opens to default startpage. Some websites didn't display correctly. Those are enough reasons enough for me not to use it. And frankly I didn't have the time to go hunt up and download all the plugins I need to make it fully functional... And foremost... because my boss says git rid of it...:) I would appreciate your help getting this computer back to normal using Internet Explorer 6. I will try Firebird again later... after you get it to work better and have an installer for it. Thanks, Brick Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.see above 2. 3.

I'm sorry that you've had a bad experience with Firebird. Since the program does in fact install correctly, this bug is INVALID. (Sorry, there's no nicer option :P) I will address some of your further concerns via private e-mail.
Everything is documented on the Firebird start page. -> INVALID PS: I don't think Asa will mind, if I take QA Contact
