does anyone know if this worked w/ 4.x. if not, then it's really a feature enhancement request. I'm moving to 0.9.3 for now.
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.2 → mozilla0.9.3
It works with Communicator 4.77. I used this feature, that is why I tried to use it with Mozilla. Notice that Communicator is unable to create the directory. It must already exist.

I tried this the other day, doing the opposite, running a mozilla install off a networked computer that has directory paths on my local drive and mozilla didn't startup.. build 3-13-03 w2k. I was on computer A. Open Computer B: open its mapped network drive: This is because I had previously copied my C:\Program Files\Mozilla.org\ - <insert moz directory>.. to my network drive on computer B. (backup purposes) I clicked on mozilla.exe on my network drive, and my profile path was on my local drive. So this is true for the opposite if you try to run a local mozilla.exe and wanna have a mapped-network drive profile directory.
