Delete doesn't delete the specified profile's directory
Latest Profile Manager (delivered 5/17/99) 1. Launch Apprunner on a clean system (delete Users50\, delete mozregistry.dat prior to running apprunner.exe 2. Create a New profile. 3. Open a DOS box, go to the apprunner\ directory, type apprunner -ProfileManager to launch the Profile Manager. 4. Select "New" and go through the Profile Creator to create at least one more profile. 5. Re-open the DOS box, go to the apprunner\ directory, type apprunner -ProfileManager to launch the Profile Manager. 6. Select an existing profile 7. Select "Delete" button 8. Proceed to delete the profile Results: The selected profile name is removed from the profile manager's pick list. Expected: I expected the selected profile's associated directory in Users50\ to be deleted along with the name in the profile pick list. Or, user should be prompted with a dialog that states that the directory and it contents that are associated with this profile will not be deleted from Users50\.
4.x didn't delete the directory either (unless 4.5, 4.51, or 4.6 did it.) If we are going to delete actual files, then we need to prompt the user first.
Promtping user to delete directories like in 4.5 needs additional UI features be available from the core services. Setting TFV to M8.
Eli has suggested that we move the deleted profiles into the recyle bin/Trash allowing users to retrieve the data if the deletion is accidental. Need a discussion on delete policy and also need to identify the way to move the deleted dirs to recycle bin. For now, even though the profile is deleted the information lives on the harddisk. Moving TFV to M9.
Calls for a new UI popup that displays all options like in 4.x (delete, delete all files, cancel). If all new the UI changes (which at present are impeded by widget implementation problems) done, the new delete implementation will be taken care of. Will be done in the beginning of M10.
P3s aren't going to make it in M10. Bulk moving to M11.
