Last modified: 2008-04-24 08:43:05 EDT
Description of problem:
As reported at mozilla bugzilla: Download manager does not work when using
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. export LANG=pl_PL.UTF-8
2. start firefox
3. press CTRL-Y
A window containing the following appears:
Błąd parsowania XML: niezdefiniowana jednostka
Numer linii: 79, kolumna 5: <key id="key_info"
XML parsing error: undefined unit
Line number: 79, column 5: <key id="key_info" key="&cmd.info.commandKey;"
Download manager starts normally
The bug was closed as invalid with the following comment:
You're using a third-party package which probably contains out of sync
If you can't reproduce the bug with a recent, Mozilla.org-made build
please report that bug to Fedora packagers.
On a side note, it seems that Fedora packaging process is probably broken,
since an issue like this one would be caught by compare-locales.pl at build
fixed in firefox-3.0-0.beta2.5.fc9
It's 3.0-0.beta2.5.fc9 that fails. To me, it looks like the Polish langpack
claims to be compatible, but it isn't.
ahh, sorry, I missed it. I can reproduce it.
Do you have the upstream bug somewhere?
In external bugzilla references: #410612
I can't reproduce it with the upstream packages so it seems to be fedora bug....
Well, 3.0b3 isn't really a precise version yet, so possibly the translation is a
few days out of sync with the program.
The upstream 3.0b3 (trunk) works fine...needs some investigation.
It needs the lates xulrunner, too. Updating xulrunner in rawhide, will be fixed
in firefox-3.0-0.beta2.6.fc9 and xulrunner-1.9-0.beta2.5.fc9.
should be fixed now.
This time no language packs seem to be available. Well, at least the download
manager is usable.
Really? Because the localization (LC_ALL=pl_PL.utf8) works fine for me.
That's strange. I have no langpacks listed in Tools -> Add-ons, and firefox is
running in English.
For reference, I grabbed latest xulrunner and firefox from koji:
Strange...the same packages work for me.

Really weird. Do you happen to know which files contain the langpacks?
I have them in /usr/lib64/firefox-3.0b3pre/extensions
Looks like something ate them:
[jsikorski@snowball ~]$ rpm -ql firefox | grep
Ahh, you're right. reopened.
firefox-3.0-0.beta2.6.fc9.x86_64 contains a wrong langpack, I hope
firefox-3.0-0.beta2.7.fc9 will fix it.
Yay, looks like the langpacks are OK this time.
With latest rawhide, that is:
the problem appeared again, but this time the window which appear when you click
a link (Open with, Save) got broken.
Still present with firefox-3.0-0.beta2.10.nightly20080113.fc9.x86_64
%define tarball firefox-20080113.tar.bz2
I guess that's the reason.
