Confirming that this happens on Win98 and WinXP as well. It breaks all of my extensions now that I use a default preference file as outlined in the "Extension File Layout" section of Ben's "Packaging Firefox/Thunderbird Extensions" document. http://www.bengoodger.com/software/mb/extensions/packaging/extensions.html This error affects files in the components/ directory as well, which can be seen in the Firesomething extension with the about:firefox and about:firesomething fetaures.
shooting for 1.0
make sure we write bin/profile defaults.ini files in the right place, not both in the profile (clobbering profile extension data with global extension data)... also fix some js errors preventing theme reversion from happening in safe mode ... and get rid of "optional components" section in update wizard
