[Fixed] Sunbird Portable 0.9 leaves folder behind

This seems similar to Thunderbird Portable, but in case of Sunbird Portable I can reproduce the issue.

The empty folder "$APPDATA\Mozilla\Sunbird\Profiles" is left behind after a fresh install.
Also if I delete the complete Data folder and launch SunbirdPortable.exe, the folder will be created and left behind.

I thought

I had the same problem but it just took the launcher very long do its job and finish.

Well, the code is:
RemoveLocalFiles:
	Delete "$APPDATA\Mozilla\Sunbird\pluginreg.dat"
	RMDir "$APPDATA\Mozilla\Sunbird\Profile" ;=== Will only delete if empty (no /r switch)
	RMDir "$APPDATA\Mozilla\Sunbird\" ;=== Will only delete if empty (no /r switch)
	RMDir "$APPDATA\Mozilla\" ;=== Will only delete if empty (no /r switch)
	Goto TheEnd

There is no line RMDir "$APPDATA\Mozilla\Sunbird\Profiles" in the launcher.
So I can wait hours and the folder is still present.

Fixed in 1.0b1 Rev 2

This is fixed in Sunbird Portable 1.0b1 Rev 2. Please note that Sunbird Portable is now mothballed and no further bug reports will be accepted.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
