Formulation of the EULA makes the product unusable
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20080404 Iceweasel/18.104.22.168 (Debian-22.214.171.124-2) Build Identifier: Unable to display, product unusable. New paragraph 4 of EULA is unacceptable by me (and lot of others) as it require I accept terms that may change in the future. I cannot accept to be bound to a policy that may change without my consent. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Install firefox 3.0, read the EULA. Actual Results: Did not continue the installation. Expected Results: No part of the EULA should depend of accepting a policy that may change without user consent. The previous EULA (version 1.1 : http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/legal/eula/firefox-en.html) did not contain such a clause.

The intent is that the we may change the EULA in the future for future versions of the code. We can't unilaterally change the EULA that a User acccepted. We can update the language. We should also limit it to material changes. We make minor fixes all the time. The question is, if there's a new point release and a new EULA, should we force the User to accept the EULA again, as a way of presenting the changes. I'm thinking of the update process which doesn't display a EULA. hja

Attached is revised EULA. Cbrady, will you double check the attached against the existing final. Adding Mike B to make sure this gets into the next builds.
Harvey & Mike, Please do no institute this change to the EULA yet. We still have another open bug on the EULA with a draft I submitted a few weeks ago and am still awaiting comments from Mike, etc. We should incorporate all changes at the same time.
Updated EULA. If no other comments should be good to include in next release.
Bug 462254, which removes the EULA, has landed for Firefox 3.0.5 and Firefox 3.1. I think we can call this fixed now.
