I downloaded the ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/candidates/16.0b1-candidates/build1/win32/en-US/firefox-16.0b1.crashreporter-symbols.zip

wanting to have them on hand incase Firefox ever crashed but.... There are NO Instructions anywhere that describe where these files should be placed and if they can remain zipped...

I have MinGW, and GDB v7.5 on hand if needed..... using Windows XP Pro 32bit Everything is up to date :D
