Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Running 1024 x 768 resolution:

When using the updater when a firefox or extension update is available launched
by the automatic updater (NOT THE MANUAL UPDATER - this works fine), the window
is oversized so that neither the title bar nor the Next and Cancel buttons are
visible.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Firefox automatically detects a new version of an extension or itself.
2. Click on the white arrow on green (or blue) circle background (above the
search bar by the dot circle loading icon) that appears.
3. The giant oversized window appears ("The Following Components are
Incompatible...") along with the normal updater.

Actual Results:  
The giant oversized (yes, I know it's redundant) window appears instead of at as
managable size.

Expected Results:  
It either sould not have appeared or it should be at a workable size.

Windows XP no SP

Please don't quote the full text (and top quoting always sucks) !
Could you try this with a Nightly Release? http://www.mozilla.org/developer at

I have also run into this issue and was able to move the screen into position
for a screen cap (attached). I am running in 1280 x 1024 on both monitors.

I've installed Nightly Release but must wait until an automatic updater is
available to test.

I can confirm that this bug exists as of the Nightly Release for June 15, 2005.
