User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 Build Identifier: Mozilla 1.5 for Linux (Sorry, I don't have access to the entire descriptor now) I was trying to replace the version of Mozilla that came with RedHat 8.0. RedHat puts Mozilla in /usr/bin/. I went to install the new version in /usr/bin (as root), and was told I already had a copy of Mozilla there. It asked if I'd like to remove the old version prior to installing the new version. I said yes. The installer removed ALL of my executable files from /usr/bin, necessitating a complete rebuild of my Linux system. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run the installer 2. Select /usr/bin as the destination 3. Watch as you are no longer able to do anything, because you have no system commands available. Actual Results: I couldn't do much of anything on my system, as many OS commands (cp, etc.) were gone. Expected Results: Only removed mozilla-specific executables
