The language download dialog reachable by:

1. Select menu: View -> Download More
2. Select a language pack (checked for German)
3. The dialog pops up. The buttons at bottom
   of the dialog are not visible.

This looks like a general bug. I have seen this
also on Mozilla for HP-UX 10.20.

I'm also seeing this on Windows 98 with build 2002010703 when I go to a page
that has characters in an encoding I don't have a language pack for.

Remove height

The problem here is a hardcoded height. If you hardcode width and height, the
dialog can't autosize.

When I removed the height the dialog came up with just a title bar. In CSS you
can specify one and not the other, but in XUL if you specify one the other is
assumed to be 0 (very odd, if you ask me). The solution is to specify sizes in
CSS, or if you only want to specify one you must add a call to sizeToContent()

In any case this entire dialog is being re-worked as part of the "embeddable
XPI" bugs, and the fix for this bug is locked up with a bunch of other changes.
Didn't make the deadline, but I'll try to beg drivers to let me in.

I don't have an OS/2 machine to test this on. Can someone with OS/2 please
verify this is fixed?
This started happening on non-localized windows builds as well, at least for
some systems (come to think of it, I used userChrome.css to bump my text size a
little), and the duped bug I think was with a JA locale. You could try one of
those things: if you can show that an old build was clipped you can then upgrade
to a fixed build to verify.

This bug has been occurring again for me in the nightly trunk builds (up to
2002061408) on Windows 98 for the past few weeks. To reproduce, go to or or
(dpending on what fonts you already have installed).
