This problem is Bug 123474 <> but there are a couple of work-arounds. The first workaround is to just get the tar ball instead of doing a network install ( <…pc-linux-gnu-0.9.8.tar.gz> ). The second is to do the FTP by hand of the XPI files and then run mozilla-installer to install them. You can get the list of XPI files for the components you want from the config.ini file. The XPI files need to go in the mozilla-installer/xpi directory.
