Description Leonid Kanter 2001-02-02 17:19:52 EST
mozilla-0.7, built at redhat, uses only iso latin 1 fonts in url field and
in forms fields. But it have to use fonts in current locale encoding
(koi8-r fonts for ru_RU.koi8r locale). The same buggy behavior like
netscape 6. With mozilla-0.7 binary from www.mozilla.org everything is OK.

Japanese is hosed too.
Comment 2 Christopher Blizzard 2001-02-26 13:13:03 EST
Adrian, wasn't this an installer bug?
Comment 3 Leonid Kanter 2001-02-26 16:36:20 EST
I've just found that this problem does not happen if LANG is set to full
canonical value (ru_RU.KOI8-R). But installer set LANG to ru_RU.koi8r, and
mozilla does not work properly with it. As for Ukrainian, it does not supporn
neither uk_UA.KOI8-U, nor uk_UA.koi8u. It seems to me that there is somewhere a
hardcoded list of supported locales in mozilla. It should be fixed or installer
should use mozilla-friendly LANG values.

No, the canonical locale is ru_RU.koi8r -- see:

msw can you file a bug in mozilla's bugzilla about this issue?
