From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; m18) Gecko/20010201 BuildID: 20010201 If you install Mozilla or Netscape 6.x you can make it your default browser and associate various file extensions with Mozilla. However if you uninstall mozilla the file associations remain. However I think that instead of just removing the associations Mozilla should do something clever and remember what apps were associated with the file extensions so uninstallation is painless. Also the "Windows Integration" panel should do the same as deinstallation will do, if you tell mozilla not to associate itself with a particular extension then it should remember the previous application and restore that as the default. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install mozilla 2. Set as default browser 3. Uninstall mozilla Actual Results: Mozilla is still associated with various filetypes .html, .gif, .jpg, etc Expected Results: The file associations should return to those apps that they were previously associated with but NOT assume a default application as the user may, for example, have photoshop associated with gifs rather than IE, for example Unchecking a file association in the "Windows Integration" panel of preferences should revert the file association to its previous state. Marking severity as major because uninstalling an application shouldn't leave your file associations in an unusable state.
