Description

14 years ago
In the first screen of the Windows Firefox installer says, "...Click Next to
continue the Setup program." at the end of the third paragraph. It then very
nearly repeats this exact text in the next paragraph when it says "Click Next to
continue installing Mozilla Firefox 0.9.0."  

This redundancy seems a bit, well, redundant.

Patch

Asa, what do you think of this change? I don't even understand what that
paragraph was trying to say, so I just trimmed it at "press cancel to quit".

Patch

Just having a "Click Cancel to quit Setup." hanging in space is a little
misleading.

I'd say either remove this string outright -- we really don't need it there, as
closing other programs is a bit of a baloney requirement -- or replace it with:

"Close any programs you have running, or click Cancel to quit Setup."

this won't be relevant to a new installer.
