It dosnt help if your not using the same version. (You: Firefox/1.5)

This is an installer only issue, right? Sounds like dom_sidebar.xpt needs to be added to the Windows packages-static.

Created attachment 206826 [details] [diff] [review] patch Fixes the windows installer, removes old xpt from the linux installer. Not sure why the zip builds would be broken, but this is a start.
Could anyone test to see if this is an issues on linux builds?

Comment on attachment 206826 [details] [diff] [review] patch the zip packaging script uses the same packages manifest as the installer to ensure that the resulting installs are identical, which is why this breaks both.
