Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 444409
GUI button icon display incorrect under Simplified Chinese locale
Last modified: 2008-07-31 01:51:12 EDT
Description of problem:
Thunderbird fails to display some of the buttons on the toolbar when envoked using the zh_CN.UTF-8 (my default)
locale. After the "Get Mail" button is pressed on, the button icon of either "Address Book" or "Forward" would be
replaced by that of "Get Mail" once the mouse cursor is moved across it. This is not permanent, though, as when I
moved the mouse to other buttons the changed icon got recovered sometimes. However, it turned out rather
unpredictable what mouse action could cause the recovery of the icons.
This is only seen with the Chinese locale in use. I tried, in the command line, envoking thunderbird with the
environmental variable LC_ALL=C then everything works correctly.
I'm using the default Thunderbird GUI theme.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
version 18.104.22.168 (20080226)
In zh_CN.UTF-8 locale, the bug is always reproducible.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Thunderbird in zh_CN.UTF-8 locale;
2. Click the "Get Mail" button to fetch mail;
3. Move the mouse over one of "Address Book" or "Forward".
Toolbar icons are displayed incorrectly for the user. The changing of button icons may cause annoyance and
misguide the user to commit incorrect operations.
The toolbar's buttons should be displayed correctly with any locale.
This looks fixed with current thunderbird.
Have you tried thunderbird-22.214.171.124-1.fc8 or with f9?
