Dupe of bug #128396 ???
I don’t believe this is a dupe of bug #128396. In that case, "blank titlebar for cyrillic text when locale is specified"... the title text did not appear. In my bug's case, the text appeared (in the wrong characterset) as ?? ???. In my i18n experience, the title data has not been corrupted, but is merely displayed incorrectly. After installing Japanese support, whether or not you can read Japanese doesn’t matter. If you visit www.asahi.com, look at the title bar, the text is ???-??. If you look at the source of the page, within the <title> tags, the correct Japanese is displayed. If you would like me to test further, please let me know.
We can display the title properly on native language system, e.g. Japanese page title on Japanese system. We are not able to disply strings in title bar on non-native system, this is an old problem, e.g. a Chinese page title on US or JA system. We have bugs(bug 104320, bug 97671) for it. I'm marking dup. for it. Please re-open if disagree. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 104320 ***
