Unable to uninstall .xpi packages
Build: 6/9/99 SeaMonkey build 1. Trigger http://jimbob/jars/a_adduninstall.jar to set up package Install.StartInstall("Acceptance: a_adduninstall", "a_uninstall", vi, 0); f = Install.GetFolder("Program", "uninstall_dir"); err = Install.AddSubcomponent(regName, vi, jarSrc, f, jarSrc, true); 2. Trigger http://jimbob/jars/a_uninstall.jar to uninstall package err2 = Install.Uninstall("a_uninstall"); RESULT: a_adduninstall.jar appears to trigger successfully. The component is installed as expected. The Uninstall registry appears correct. Triggering a_uninstall.jar results in err2 = -213 (no such component). The Install.log indicates that the installscript aborts. The package is not uninstalled. The Uninstall registry for the installed component is not removed. EXPECTED RESULT: Triggering a_uninstall.jar results in the package being uninstalled. The Uninstall registry is updated with this node removed. The Install.log reflects a successful uninstall.

Adding [nsbeta2-] since this is an identified feature which was cut. Per today's beta2 XP Install status review.
Changing fictional "M30" to reality

kerz: We'd really like this for the media player, especially since installing the media player increases browser startup time (and new window time) quite a bit.
The OS should be changed from "Windows NT" to "All". No matter what platform you are using, if you can install a package you should be able to uninstall it as well. I'd make the change myself, but I'm not sexy enough.
Yes, this is a cross-platform bug. (Why would media player affect new window time?)

I'm not sure if there's a method for showing the packages (about:xpi?) but that should probably be a portion of the uninstaller.
