User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; H010818; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: I already erased the Mozilla program in its entirety from my PC. This "bug" erased the accumulated functionality of about six months' work. I use this PC in my work every day, and have been using Firefox exclusively (where possible) since I first installed it. I am amazed and thoroughly disgusted that a REQUIRED "plug-in" could have this result! When I went to restore a prior installation from an external HD, I discovered that THAT had been "updated" as well!!! Apparently, the "required plug-in" downloaded from the Internet discovered the Firefox data on the back-up HD and "improved" it as well!! I will not be using your product again, no matter what. Screw me once, shame on you. Screw me twice, shame on me. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Run Firefox. 2. 3. Actual Results: Welcome to "Getting Started" and a total absence of my bookmarks. Expected Results: Duh!!!
If the Sun installer wiped out your data, that's an issue with Sun's product. We don't _require_ Java, and many users actually disable Java. While I'm sorry to hear that your profile seems to be broken (which seems a little odd) filing a bug here about a problem seemingly experienced while using a third-party installer won't help anyone, other than perhaps a need to vent. There is of course a chance that your profile data is still lurking in an odd location, but if you're not inclined to look, then that is your choice.
sorry for bugspam, long-overdue mass reassign of ancient QA contact bugs, filter on "beltznerLovesGoats" to get rid of this mass change
