Linux only. Mozilla build 2000-08-18-08-M18. 1. Download Linux install stub. gzip and tar extract. 2. Run the installer. 3. Open the directory selector. 4. Select directory location /usr/local. 5. Click OK. Result: While installing, several small error message windows pop up. Each one has "Error -421; A .xpi failed to install." Expected: Only ONE such message window should appear. And the message should be more user friendly, indicating that user doesn't have permissions to install to that location.
Linux == sgehani.

It'd be nice to do a permissions sanity check before downloading anything, at least for the main directory users pick in the wizard. Not sure we could do much about any directories not under that sub-tree, but most of our stuff installs into the same place.
Yes, this is one I'd really like to fix if I get time.
