Right now (tested windows Mozilla 1.7rc1) we warn the user that we're going to blow away the contents of the target directory even when there isn't any offending 3rd-party component installed. We should be more intelligent than this. We should poll that directory and if the only files there are ours, then not warn the user. Steps to reproduce: 1. Do a clean install of Mozilla 1.7rc1. 2. Do an install of Mozilla 1.7rc1 on top of the previous 1.7rc1 install. Results: user is prompted that unrecognized 3rd party components will be deleted. Expected results: we don't need to warn if the only thing we're deleting are our own bits. we should poll the directory and if the only files there are ours, then don't warn.
