Overview Description: 
I deleted all the files which Mozilla creates before unpacking the new build, 
saying I am going from a clean build.

Then I fire up Mozilla, it wants to start Profile Migration and displays the 
(broken) Dialog Box (but the fact its not displaying properly is not the problem 
here). I can click "Convert", then I first saw something like this in the 

AutoMigration failed. Let's create a default 5.0 profile.

Then it crashed:
MOZILLA caused an invalid page fault in
module PROFILE.DLL at 016f:607317fe.

I check out what it did and what not and find it created the 
/Windows/Mozilla/registry.dat and the /Windows/mozregistry.dat. So if I start it 
now its still asking me with the Profile Migration DialogBox...I hit "Convert" 
and then it crashes w/o console notice:

And this happens now everytime I start it up. When I kill the two .dat's again, 
then you can start reading on the top of this report again.

Steps to Reproduce: 
1) Fire up a clean Mozilla build
2) Click on "Convert" when the Profile Migrator asks

Actual Results: 
Crash, details see above.

Expected Results: 
Should convert the profile, then load Mozilla.

This actually looks like a Profile Manager bug, not a profile migration bug.  
Before I reassign it, a little more information would be helpful.  When you said 
you deleted the two .dat files, what were they?

You need to make sure you deleted the registry.dat file from the Mozilla 
directory.  Did you do that?

This is going to be hard. From what I know about another related bug 50824, 
windows95 OS is not returning AppData folder value on some machines (may be 
missing some configuration). So, I put in a small patch (will post in the next 
update) that falls back on the windows directory in such case. I have asked 
grace, ji and teruko to try it out.

I think this happens only on win95. I am taking this bug thinking that the above 
could be the reason. Will keep dan bragg in the cc list.

Sean, you have win98->win2000 connection. Do you also have win95->win2000 ? 
Trying out optimized bits might be a efficient way to kill this bug. If any of 
you know about such an arrangement, please let me know. It would be much 

Do we usually make win95 bugs as smoketest blockers....?

I don't think I would hold the tree for this... Unless you convince me otherwise
I will open the tree once the Mac menu problems are solved.

Well dan, I mentioned the two .dat's right in the same text above. Thats why I 
didn't respecify them below:

/Windows/Mozilla/registry.dat and the /Windows/mozregistry.dat

But the problem seems to be tracked down anyway.
