Stub installer process stays opened after the install is finished


(Firefox :: Installer, defect)

20 Branch
Not set



Tracking Status
firefox20 - ---


(Reporter: simona.marcu, Assigned: rstrong)


Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; rv:20.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/20.0
Build ID: 20130307075451

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download and install the Beta Stub Installer
2. In the installer, in the Firefox Setup window -> click on the Options button
3. Uncheck - Send information about this installation to Mozilla and click on the Install button
4. After the install is completed and Firefox is launched - check the Task Manager.

Expected results:
After the install is complete, Firefox is launched and the firefox-20.0.en-US.win32.installer-stub.exe process is closed in the Task Manager.

Actual results: 
firefox-20.0.en-US.win32.installer-stub.exe process is still opened after Firefox is launched.

This issue is only reproducible when using the beta stub installer (not reproducible when using the nightly/aurora stub installer).

My current suspicion is that Bug 848794 didn't get built into the beta stub installer.

The beta stub installer did not contain the fixes from Bug 848794. There is a new beta stub installer that does contain the fixes here:

Can someone verify that this bug can no longer be reproduced? Thanks!
I can no longer reproduce this with the new builds, in comment #2. I tested this on WinXP, Win7, and Vista using the steps in comment #0 in combination with testing bug 848794
