Description

18 years ago
When on page 2 in the Create New Profile the default profile folder is:
"C:\PROGRAM FILES\MOZILLA\Users50\Default Users"

The directory should not be shown with uppercase letters.

My directory is called:
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla\" NOT "C:\PROGRAM FILES\MOZILLA\"
I'm not about to do pretty formatting of this string as it's platform specific. 

Strictly speaking, your folder name is C:\PROGRA~1\MOZILLA\USERS50\DEFAUL~1

Where do you get the "C:\PROGRAM FILES\MOZILLA\" from?
from the back end ;)

ok, to be fair, reopening and assigning to selmer.

Do the underlying file primitives we're using make this trivial to fix?  If not, 
perhaps this bug should go to dougt...

I think this one was reproduced on a Danish version of Win98.
I'll investigate! But I'm not on a Danish Win98 before tonight...:)

Reproduced on a Danish version of Win98 (4.10.1998) with build 20000725.
Default profile directory:
C:\PROGRAMMER\MOZILLA\Users50\Default User

If I manualy choose the same folder I'll get the correct case of the folder 
directory name and the console correctly says:
*** setting rootFolderAttribute to C:\Programmer\Mozilla\Users50\gemal
But initialy it's still wrong.

Watch out for bug fix for 58679. That should do it...

Doing a mass reassign to Conrad Carlen.

Conrad is going address all current and upcoming profile manager issues. Please
do not hesitate to involve me in any of the issues.

The upper-casing is being done deep in XPCOM and is causing other problems as
well so it is being removed. See bug 58679. Should be fixed soon.

Setting milestone to mozilla0.8 and adding dependency. I'm assuming that bug
58679 will be fixed by 0.8
Depends on: 58679
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.8
