Description

19 years ago
In the installer there should be an option to add an icon to the quick launch 
bar.
This option should (can) only be available if the system is an Win98/IE4 or 
better.

Must be done? but no keywors/status. This won't happen.

If you do it, you must prompt the user. I hate this junk.
Also some /companies/ like _having shortcuts to their_ apps on the desktop. MS 
*dislikes* this.

adding rtm to get on radar per Sean Su's email
Also cc'ing law who did other desktop integration stuff, plus tpringle
Keywords: rtm
I can't see the PDT approving this based on other P3 rejections. If this is a
strong requirement please have the PDT comment in this bug that they are open to
accepting this before I have Sean go off and waste time coming up with a patch.

comments from peterlubczynski@netscape.com:

IE Does it, 
MSN does it, 
Nav 4.x does it, 
and....
AIM does it AND has a tray icon,
Real (that we ship with) does it AND has a tray icon,
Winamp (that we ship with) does it AND has a tray icon!

Could we put a shortcut ot Netscape 6 down there?

I absolutely think we should have it. Why wouldn't we... it will only increase 
our usage. IMO it should be an option in the installer and should be on by 
default.

Provided we can not easily prompt the user, I think it is ok to simply put this 
shortcut here... so many other software products do the same thing. There is one 
more initiative going on to put a shortcut to the download site in the taskbar 
as well... FYI: Bugscape #2347

Just to correct myself... this bug has nothing to do with 2347. That bug places 
something in a pull-down menu.

clearing nsbeta1- for reconsideration given Jeremy's input.

I think this *seems* like a little bit of work for a win that could help us a 
lot. Many users never dig down to find things, and this would place Netscape 
somewhere much more accessible and inviting.

Todd Pringle feels the same way, so I guess we have to do it. :-)

Sean, is this still your bug?  If it's not, could you reassign and change the
nsbeta1+ back to an nsbeta1 for retriaging.

Since I made the patches, I'll check them in.

FYI: this only adds the 'Mozilla'/'Netscape 6' shortcut to the quicklaunch bar,
no other shortcuts are added (such as profile manager, editor, or even mail
because the icons for them have not been properly integrated into
mozilla.exe/netscp6.exe.

(Taking over for Sean)

I think these are seperate bugs, although I may address them simultaneously.

I didn't notice that Syd already has patches for this one, so it is all his now.

Henrik, unfortunately not.  That bug is a backend problem.  This patch just
creates shortcuts via js scripts, not via the low level code.

patches checked in.  The patches had code to create the mail shortcuts (as well
as the navigator shortcut in the quicklaunch bar), so I disabled it before
checking them in.

It should now add just the browser shortcut to the quicklaunch bar.

please also look at bug 28174. At *lot* of people hate when installers put 
icons all over the system without their permission.
