User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-AT; rv:1.5)
Description of problem:
Window titles with German Umlauts are not shown correctly.
"ï¿½" becomes a box.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log into KDE.
2. start Gimp or start KSnapshot
3. or start any app with an Umlaut like Ã Ã¤ Ã Ã¶ Ã Ã¼ in the window title.
Actual Results: The Word "KanÃ¤le" (Channels) becomes "Kan e",
"GeÃ¤ndert" (changed) becomes "Ge dert"
locale ist set to "de_DE.UTF-8"
As you see mozilla can't handle Umlauts in UTF-8 ether.
Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.
NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.
Closed per above message and lack of response. Note that FC1 and FC2 are not even
supported by Fedora Legacy anymore.
