From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.1) Gecko/20010607 BuildID: 200106703 nim.xpi doesn't install properly. This may be by design because netscape wishes to keep it seperate or something but it should at least still install on mozilla if someone finds the xpi and tries to install it Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Install NIM.xpi on mozilla Actual Results: Recommended tab doesn't come up in sidebar Expected Results: NIM appears somewhere in sidebar
I'm not even sure if mozilla supports nim.xpi. What build of mozilla did you try this with? Where did you get nim.xpi from (URL)?
This is probably invalid -- look in your task menu and see if the IM item appears. If it does and it works then NIM installed just fine. If it didn't install fine we probably want to know about it in case of serious general install bugs, but I'm sure AOL probably doesn't want us to spend a lot of time fixing this if it's a NIM/Mozilla specific thing. The sidebar panel is not installed with NIM, it's part of the localized profile content stuff, and in fact there's a different bug that you get the IM sidebar panel on N6 even if you don't install NIM.
Marking this Invalid, as NIM is designed for NS 6.x only and isnt supposed to work with Mozilla
Updating summary so we don't re-open this if at some point in the future the nim.xpi does legitimately break. The reporter did not answer questions about whether the NIM software itself worked. Also the nature of most Mozilla components is that they only work when matched to the correct version of XPCOM. If the N6.0 version of NIM was attempted to be installed into the Moz0.9.1 version, for example, I would expect that to fail horribly.
