Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

I updated my Firefox 21 to Firefox 22. As soon as 22 loaded, I got a bunch of error messages about not being able to find dlls. I installed 21 again and watched all those dlls magically reappear in the Firefox dir. So, I copied them to a temp dir, installed 22 again and watched them all vanish. I copied them back into the Firefox dir from my newly made temp copy and errors are gone now.

I don't know if this is a bug in their installer, if they moved those dlls elsewhere and didn't update Firefox to look in the new location, or what. Either way, something like that should have been caught before 22 was released publicly.

For the record, I'm running Windows 7 64bit.

And somehow millions of users kept quiet and said nothing. Or could it be that this is a rare bug that only sometimes gives problems? Or faulty hardware?

Either way, if you(maybe with the help of mozilla)find out if there is a problem you should share it.

That's really weak sarcasm for a myriad number of reasons. And btw, faulty hardware doesn't make dlls appear/disappear according to which version of an app you're installing.
