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.

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.
