Description

6 years ago
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #507896 +++

After (automatic) upgrading from alpha to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.1pre) Gecko/20090717 SeaMonkey/2.0b1 in Windows Vista all HTML files (including .html, .htm, .shtml) are displayed with the SeaMonkey mail icon (the envelope with the down arrow).

I tried to reassign those file types to IE (which worked showing the IE icon). Then reassigned to SeaMonkey. Again wrong icon.

It was correct before the upgrade.

I saw this when working on the Windows taskbar jumplist. The favicons were all {mail envelope with a green down arrow}

Possible fallout from: Bug 552118 - File association icon for HTML and .eml files is set to a generic icon.

Ping Frank. Any ideas?

Was that bug 747774?

Is this bug still there?

No but this problem might have the same cause. Someone ported Firefox code to SM which assumes that the second icon resource in the EXE file is document.ico whereas in SeaMonkey.exe it is newmail.ico. So you need to track down the bit in our installer code which assumes this.

mcsmurf is our installer expert...

Perhaps we should port this part:
http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/annotate/0aa393eef856/browser/installer/windows/nsis/shared.nsh#l437
From Firefox Bug 404541 - [MSFT-7816] on Vista / Windows 7 installer does not elevate or ask to be elevated
