Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Run the Firefox installer, proceed until the Installing... screen 2.Click the Cancel button 3.Click the window's Close button Actual Results: Firefox continues to install Expected Results: Installation should stop; all files and settings should return to their original state
At least on Windows its now quite common for applications to not allow a cancel once they've begun to copy files. There's always the uninstaller. Not really sure if this is so important for Firefox 1.0.
Confirming: (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040608 In the latest builds, the cancel button is never active, its always disabled.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Summary: Should be able to cancel during install → Should be able to cancel during install/button disabled
Unlikely we'll get to this by 1.0.
Flags: blocking1.0? → blocking1.0-
this is especially a problem when the automatic update kicks in and wants to close all open firefox windows which can lead to data being lost when the installer kills the open browser windows.

The installer isn't used for Software Update anymore (e.g. comment #4). Comment #1 is correct and we don't allow canceling an install once it has started. Resolving -> WONTFIX
