Unchecking "Create shortcut on my taskbar" in stub installer still pins Firefox when also set as default browser
The new installer has the option named [Create Shortcuts for Firefox] "On my Task bar". Even with the option un-checked, Firefox still pins itself to the taskbar.
I have re-installed Firefox x86_64 Windows edition (version 27.0.1). I see no problem with the pin "On my Task Bar" checkbox. I installed it with the option checked and again with the option unchecked. The expected outcomes were the actual outcomes. In conclusion, I believe that the bug (if there was one) from the version 22 installer is no long in the current version 27 installer.
The bug is still there: http://screencast.com/t/n7PMRxTjc9CC

It's unlikely that I will get to work on this in the next two weeks, so unassigning myself for now.

What does this bug actually cover? Is it just investigating why this sometimes doesn't happen? Bug 1229626 fixed a different case, so presumably pinning works in general, so I'm not sure if this but is actually now WORKSFORME or covers something else.
We add pinning when setting as default. In the stub UI when choosing options we have a checkbox that when unchecked should not pin. When setting as default it is always pinned even when unchecking.
Ah, I see. Attempting to clarify title.

Roman, could you check if this is still an issue with a Nightly build now that bug 1229626 has been fixed? Thanks!
Cory -- can anyone reproduce this in any of the onboarding or QX work? I'm not sure if the reporter is still attentive to this after 4 years.
I'm closing this as a dup per comment 8. Feel free to re-open with STR if the issue still exists.
