This makes it impossible to uninstall via Add/Remove Programs. An "Uninstall log not found" error is given when trying to uninstall, and the Add/Remove Programs entry still refers to 'Mozilla Firefox (1.4)'. Additionally, on running a 1.4.1-branded installer, a new entry is created - for 'Mozilla Firefox (1.4.1)', instead of updating the existing entry. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install the 20050930 branch nightly. 2. Auto-update to the 20051001 nightly. 3. Try to uninstall via Add/Remove Programs. Actual Results: "Log not found" error. Expected Results: Firefox is uninstalled.

WFM. Installed 30-9 nightly. Updated it with Help > Check for updates. It updated it to 1-10 and I had no problem to uninstall in the Software window. (Do you want to uninstall Firefox 1.4 and all of its components...?) After uninstalling the directory was empty.
Note: I too experienced this bug, but only after Software Update first failed to successfully apply a partial update then switched to and successfully installed a complete update. Thus, if I'm not mistaken, this bug show up only if Software Update installs a complete build.
Darin, can you look into this? I think we probably need to make it better by Final.

I just checked the registry on my machine where Firefox was updated from 1.4 to 1.4.1, and it appears to have the same problem. The registry settings are not correct :-(
OK, the problem here is that the directory service query for XREExeF is failing. I think that what's going on here is that one of my patches for toolkit/xre didn't make it into the tree :-(
Created attachment 198468 [details] [diff] [review] v1 patch In fact, this is the patch I wrote for bug 301253. Unfortunately, I completely forgot to include it in the patch that I uploaded to that bug, and as a result it never made it into the tree. The patch is very simple. It just provides a directory service key that returns the same thing as the XRE_GetBinaryPath function.
