Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1

Clicking on Install in the mentioned URL produces no action. It seems that it
just realoads the page ( the progress bar in the status line show some activity
for a few seconds )

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit
http://update.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=154&vid=263&category=&page=releases
2. Click on the Install link in the thirs row ( why do all rows have the same
description ? )

Actual Results:  
Nothing ( maybe a page reload )

Expected Results:  
Something that fixes the security vulnerability.

Have you verified that it did not install with the vulnerability tests at
http://www.mccanless.us/mozilla/mozilla_bugs.htm ?

The first link open an explorer windows listin the syste \WINDOWS directory.
The rest gives a "no such file" error dialog ( MS IE 6.0 gives more or less the
same ).
Does this mean FF is patched ( and IE too ? ).

In about:config, do you see "network.protocol-handler.external.shell" set to
"false"? If so, then the patch has been installed.

WFM.
You did click on "Install" to the right, above "Size: 1 KB", didn't you?
Are you able to install other extensions from update.mozilla.org?

Your options are:
1. Download the patch by right-clicking, save link as. Then drag and drop in in
Firefox's extension manager to install. Restart Firefox. It won't be listed in
the extension manager though.

2. Download Firefox 0.9.2 or a branch nightly.

3. Enter about:config in the url bar, right-click, New, Boolean, preference
name: network.protocol-handler.external.shell, value: false. That only affects
the current profile though.

I disagree. I clicked to install an important security fix. Nothing happened.
It should have either isntalled the fix or state why it did not do that.

If the lack of an error is the problem, then this is a duplicate of bug 248486
