Installer does not promt to import data
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040417 Firefox/0.8.0+ Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040417 Firefox/0.8.0+ After this nightly build is downloaded and installed, the Import Wizard initiates and starts importing the favorites, saved passwords, history etc. The user is not provided any control over he import data. The Back and Cancel buttons are disabled and so the user cannot cancel the import. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Download the latest nightly build from mozilla.org and start installation. 2.When the installation is finished, check off "Launch Firefox" and click "Finish" 3.Manually launch the browser Actual Results: After the browser is installed, the Import Wizard automatically starts importing the favorites, cookies etc from the installed browsers on he system. The user has no control of stopping this import of data. Also when the import is complete, the next dialog box disappears in a couple of seconds not allowing the user to even manually click the "Finish" button. Expected Results: The installer should ask for user input whether to import data from other browsers, rather than taking over the control. Follow up tests --------------- 1. Replicated three times and the same misbehavior is seen. The last window, signalling the finish of import, disappears in a few seconds, making it almost worthless to have it displayed in the first place. Importance of the Bug --------------------- 1. The installer takes control of importing the data from other browsers, whereas the user might not want certain data to be imported to this browser. 2. Also the buttons provided in the Import Wizard are disabled, so even if the user changed his mind mid way of the import, he cannot diable the import.
