From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011116 BuildID: 2001111608 The description for selecting your language says "You must restart for a new language setting to take effect." It should say "You must restart Mozilla for a new language setting to take effect." Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open Preferences 2. select Appearance 3. read the text Actual Results: User is deluded into thinking the computer must be rebooted, since that's what "you must restart" usually means in other applications. This is basically the same as Bug 109477. I found the string here: http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/xpfe/components/prefwindow/resources/locale/en-US/pref-appearance.dtd#34 Just change it to: <!ENTITY languageList.txt.label "Choose a language for &brandShortName;. The setting affects the language for text that appears in dialog boxes, menus, toolbars, and button labels. You must restart &brandShortName; for a new language setting to take effect."> Unfortunately I am too lazy to learn how to make patches. Of course the change needs to be localized too...
morse, please r. alecf, please rs.
vrfy'd fixed using 2001.11.28.0x-comm bits on linux rh7.2, mac 10.1.1 and winnt. also checked that the mozilla bits [at least a linux one from 11/26] say 'Mozilla' instead of 'Netscape 6'.
