Wow, I really hope Ben changes his mind on this one. This would really suck for the project to get bitten by bad press from this, and you know M$ would try to hype it up behind the scenes. I read a few comments and thought it was mostly BS, but after reading most of the comments it becomes clear that this has effected more than one person independently. I can't see myself selecting Program Files as an install directory, but I can see myself selecting G:\ as a base for it to install, thinking it would create the MozillaFirebird folder for me as many installers do. Next thing I know, FB is the only thing left on G: drive! God that would suck.

I would much rather see FB be delayed another 2 months (like it would take that long) for this fix to get in than see it released in a few days with this bug. Even though I have tried the nightlies and they fscking rock! God this is one of the best programs I've ever used. Just fix the bug so I can recommend it to my family and friends, please! Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend it...
