"To get back to the main topic: you were asking us to test the builds. In other posts we are asked to use talkback enabled builds. I stated that after doing several dozen of Installer installs I am pissed off of the fact that I cannot simply install a talkback build using untar. Well, maybe I should have just kept that fact to myself and simply proceed with not bothering with testing or installing ..."

Or you could test the million other parts of the build besides stability.

Get a not-talkback build if you don't like the installer. Talkback is good. The more people using talkback builds the better, but if you don't want to use the installer then don't. Having talkback is in no way a pre-requisite for testing a Mozilla build. Even if you did crash this candidate build and submit a talkback report, it probably wouldn't have any impact on the release. We already know what our topcrashers are for this milestone and if we just introduced a new one in the last day or two, we'll see it from the people that do like the installer builds or we'll hear people screaming that the builds are crashing and they don't have talkback. (are the builds crashing a lot for you?)
