Hello

because of the move (around the date 2011-03-04) from "Roaming" to "Local" the installer/updater should delete the old file automatically.

Roaming (old path) = "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\PROFILENAME\urlclassifier3.sqlite"

Local (new path) = C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\PROFILENAME\urlclassifier3.sqlite

Reproducible: Didn't try


Actual Results:  
In both folders the file "urlclassifier3.sqlite" exists.

Expected Results:  
Should only exist in "Local"

Product: Core → Firefox
QA Contact: profile-roaming → installer
Summary: [Win] installer/updater should remove the old file "urlclassifier3.sqlite" in Roaming → [Win] installer/updater should remove the old file "urlclassifier3.sqlite" in roaming part of profile
Why should the installer or the updater remove this file?

For example, a system can have multiple users. If the installer or the updater did this it would only happen for the user that ran the installer or updater instead of for each user.

Moving over to general since this is a profile file and the application itself can fix this for all users vs. having the installer or the updater fix this which can only fix this for the user that runs the installer or the updater.

Also, removing the "solution" text from the summary so it only includes the desired outcome.
