I'm not sure if this is an intended customization but skipping some steps in the Install process could seem invasive to a regular user. 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Navigate to:
http://downloads.yahoo.com/firefox/
2. Download Firefox optimized for Yahoo
3. After the download is completed - click on the .exe file -> Run.

Expected results:
In the opened installer you get the possibility to customize the installation (setup type, the location, set up shortcuts etc).

Actual results: 
Once the Run button is clicked there is no possibility to stop the install or to customize it.
Yahoo is wrapping our installer and preventing customization.

needinfo'ing mconnor in case he wants to talk with Yahoo about this.

mcconor, I also noticed that they are using the Firefox icon (a poor quality one at that) for their installer in case you'd like to do something about that as well.

I believe we've already followed up on this with Yahoo.
