There seems to be something wrong in the use of the registration db on windows. In the HKEY_LOCAL_SOFTWARE there are both a: "Mozilla" and "Mozilla.org" entry! I know the installer creates the "Mozilla.org" entry. The "Mozilla" entry seems to be create when starting Mozilla. I'm not sure who responsible for the creation of the "Mozilla" entry. There should be some sync between those two.
I meant "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" \ "SOFTWARE"

Hmmm... I'm quite sure this is not installer since the installer creates "Mozilla.org" and then the launch of Mozilla creates "Mozilla". Or am I wrong? Sean?
You are partially correct. There are several places that create those keys: Mozilla.org - created by the installer Mozilla - created by the installer *and* by mozilla.exe. The one done by the installer for this key is a workaround for the Java installer trying to find mozilla's plugins folder. The one done by mozilla.exe is for saving the file associations prior to being changed. The correct one should just be Mozilla.org, but Mozilla will still need to be created for the Java workaround, until the Java installer is updated. WRT the file associations, that code can be changed to create Mozilla.org, but that's a different bug and should be assigned to Bill Law.
