From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; 0.8.1) Netscape6/6.5b0 BuildID: 2001040304 Right now we allow the user to make a choice about whether they would like to download via FTP protocol, or via http protocol. We give users this choice because it is sometimes easier to download via http when behind a firewall. This decision should not be left to the user, but instead we should default to FTP downloading, with an automatic failover to http if FTP is not successful after two tries. This will clean up the user experience, and remove a step in the download/install process. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run stub app 2. Begin download/install process 3. Navigate to Download Options window
