Mozilla Firebird Installer Moves Closer

Wednesday October 8th, 2003

Henrik Gemal wrote in to tell us that an official installer for Mozilla Firebird is getting closer. Today saw a large checkin to mozilla/browser/installer/ from developer Ben Goodger. Like the Mozilla Application Suite installer, the Firebird installer is built upon the XPInstall engine.

The very fact that this much thought is being put into it is a great thing. Most developers just throw something together and end up with a very sloppy installer/uninstaller.

Just don't use any more registry keys than are absolutely necessary, please! And as for plugins, why not just instruct whoever writes those to create an XPI to install as an extension?
