WFM -- just downloaded and installed Firefox 1.0.2 onto a Win98 SE box -- installed versio is: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2
I can reproduce this bug. I clicked on automatic upgrade, downloaded FF 1.0.2 and same results - non working previus install (1.0) and no installation of new version. I uninstaled prev. version, but w/o changes. And the worst - I can not install 1.0 anymore too. Non working versions: 1.0; 1.0.2; 1.0.3 (pre?). Working version: 1.0 PR On other Win98 boxs with similar setup installation works fine.

A cure for the Bug. Following the comment from email@example.com that Firefox 1.0.2 does install on a Windows 98 System with no proevious installed Versions of Firefox,I cured successful the problem by: a)Searching for all Firefox Files with Search>Firefox. b)Deleating all Firefox files in the Windows folder left over from proevious installations. c)Proceiding,then, with the upgrading installation. It worked for me!.
