These directions are for users of Mozilla 1.7.2 and 1.7.3 as customized for use at the University of Delaware.

  1. If you are directly connected to UD's network (either on-campus or dialed into the UD modem pool), follow this link to download a copy of Mozilla 1.7.8 to your computer. If you are connecting through another ISP, follow this link to download a copy of Mozilla 1.7.8 to your computer.

    Save it on your desktop. You will see an icon labelled mozilla1_78u on your computer's desktop. Do not install the new software until you have removed Mozilla 1.7.2 or 1.7.3.

  2. From your computer's Start menu, select Control Panel.
  3. Select Add or Remove Programs.
  4. Scroll down the list of programs until you see Mozilla. Click once on Mozilla, then click Remove. (If instead of seeing separate "Change" and "Remove" buttons you see a button labelled Change/Remove, select that one and, if prompted, select Remove in the next dialog box.)
  5. In the Mozilla Uninstaller dialog box, click Yes. It will take several minutes for the old copy of Mozilla to be removed from your computer. Your preferences, bookmarks, and e-mail information will remain on your computer.
  6. After the program has been removed, close the Add or Remove Programs and Control Panel windows.

  7. Now you may double-click the mozilla1_78u icon on your desktop to install Mozilla 1.7.8. The UD-customized copy of this software has the proper settings for using Mozilla with UD's new Mirapoint e-mail system.

  8. After the installation is complete, return to the computer's desktop. You will see three Mozilla related icons: The installation icon, the Mozilla Navigator icon, and the Mozilla Mail icon.
  9. You can delete the installation icon because it is no longer needed: Right-click the icon. Click Delete.
    • The Mozilla Navigator icon will take you directly to the Mozilla browser program.
    • The Mozilla Mail icon will take you directly to the Mozilla e-mail program.
