Description of problem:
Plugger is not installed by default at a workstation installation, as it should,
just like it is in version 7.3, since it is an essential component for mozilla.
Without it, linux would be rendered quite inadequate for the unexperienced user
whose primary use of it is surfing the web and using webmail.

While you're at it, make sure this patch:
make the final release too. Then we'll finally have a distro with a default
browser that is able to compete with IE.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

i already added plugger for workstation installation.

Christopher, could you please take a look at

Perhaps we should add this patch into mozilla.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2002-08-06 12:08:40 UTC
Plugger is still not getting selected for installation with the Workstation
component with the Milan-re0806.nightly tree.

Comment 3 Ngo Than 2002-08-06 12:28:07 UTC
yes, it's not in the comps file.

Bill, should we add it for workstation installation?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2002-08-12 19:56:52 UTC
I don't know; there were various complaints about it behaving strangely on the
internal lists here.

Comment 5 Jay Turner 2002-08-16 15:00:35 UTC
Unless plugger is getting pulled in as a dependency, then it is still not listed
in the comps.xml file in the re0816.0 tree.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2002-08-16 18:11:49 UTC
Intentional; this was due to the complaints about it behaving badly.
