User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; InfoPath.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727)
Build Identifier: version 1.5.0.2 and earlier

The uninstaller can not run silently

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. uninstall
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
You get a message window

Expected Results:  
Uninstallation

1. Try using msi if you like standards
2. If not: being able to install and uninstall programs is very important in large companies. having an option for uninstalling without the window would ease the use of Thunderbird as it is required e.g. using Tivoli/sms for distribution

Still think Mozilla should start using the standard format of application deployment on Windows (MSI). This have been around for the last 12 years and I see no reason for not using it...

But, using uninstall.ini with slight modifications, silent uninstall is possilble. So I close the bug-report...

If you want a slight change-request:
Let uninstall.ini have Run Mode equall to the run mode it was installed in!
