User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6

I am trying to launch Sunbird 0.2 using Firefox 1.06. Download seems OK, slow as
I only have 52k Dial Up but OK. 
Get the "done" message then click "open". I get a warning message about an
executable file, etc.,.
Click "OK"
Then get "External Protocol Request" Warning.
Saying "an external file must be launched to handle file, link: requested link:
"file///C:%5CDocuments%20and%20%settings%5Cjohn..." falls off end of message.
"unless you are expecting this message..."

Click On "launch application" then nothing.

Same happens when I try to download Mozzilla.

I downloaded from 
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/sunbird_download.html

Both the installer and the zip version, same result.

Other downloads seem to work.
 
Any advice pls?

I can tell for sure if this is a firefox or a sunbird issue... does this still happen with current sunbird and firefox versions? as I understand it, nothing happens after launching the application, which could mean either that firefox never launched it, or sunbird was launched, but failed to load.

Please let me know by commenting here if you have any luck with a newer version, or if you are able to launch sunbird directly. Thanks.

WFM with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.5pre) Gecko/20070604 BonEcho/2.0.0.5pre downloading http://download.mozilla.org/?product=sunbird-0.3.1&os=win&lang=en-US. I don't think Sunbird (better: the installer or zip package) caused this problem.
