It would be great to get this fixed, but I recommend "nsbeta1-" because
unfortunately, there are other defects that require more immediate attention.

This bug is targeted at a Mac classic platform/OS, which is no longer supported
by Please re-target it to another platform/OS if this bug applies
there as well or resolve this bug.

I will resolve this bug as WONTFIX in four weeks if no action has been taken.
To filter this and similar messages out, please filter for "mac_cla_reorg".

This bug hasen't been touched for years and is clearly unowned. Moving back to default assignee/QA so that people, who are watching those can accurately triage this bug.

Also resetting Priority, Target Milestone, Status Whiteboard and Status.

Add-on installation has been rewritten (more than once) since this bug was filed; under the new UI I can cancel an add-on install while it is downloading (tested by pulling my network connection while the download was in progress).
