Mozilla 1.7RC STEPS: Use linux net installer Configure proxy for any of the standard error scenarios (hostname not found, hostname found but port incorrect). Incorrect hostname -> "Fatal error [-615], Download failed" Connection refused (wrong port) -> blinks a quick error message. At this time I was not able to test for no system responds (connection establishment timeout), but I'm pretty sure it will fail as well. These are the three basic error conditions you should always handle correctly.
the apparent exit is bug 236294, fixed on trunk nsXIEngine::Download() has horrible error handling. Any persistent network error is considered a fatal CRC error. ==> me

yes, the net installer is gone, the linux installer is discontinued, the windows installer is absed on NSIS
