Blocks: 115707
This meta bug is intended only for bugs with high-level right-to-left layout.
Please don't add dependencies to bugs on lower-level Bidi text issues (e.g.
things like bug 91312 or bug 81367)
On second thoughts I am adding fixed bugs as well as open, because they may be
useful for reference.

Depends on Bug 231701 - format=flowed DelSp=yes not supported (RFC 3676)

Because:  Lake of line-break/paragraph-separator detection cause many BiDi
problems, i.e. mail client fails to auto-align paragraph.

Is bug 132733 really a layout issue, or more of a XUL issue? Suggest that it be dropped as blocking this bug.

I've noticed a related issue while testing something else:
1. Install Force RTL addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/force-rtl/?src=ss
2. Switch the UI direction
AR: The minimize,maximize,close buttons remain on the right side (covered by the Firefox button) until FF is restarted.
FF 19b4, Win 7 x64
Is this known ?

That might be a problem with the Force RTL add-on.  Please try restarting the browser after switching the direction and see if the problem still happens.

Hey magicp - not sure what you mean by following up. It's good that you've corralled all of these RTL bugs into a single meta! A hacker with the time and the inclination can now be pointed at this single bug to try to drill down our remaining RTL issues.

I'm, unfortunately, not that hacker. :/ Layout isn't really in my wheelhouse, and I'm afraid my hands are all busy working on e10s right now.

Regarding https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1214221#c10
You wrote: I certainly hope they're filed, whatever they are.

I thought that inform you they are filed. Unfortunately, I don't know you are responsible for what area, but I know you are busy. Could you assign to person in appropriate charge for them? I am a complete theme developer(not hacker) so always check them for compatible. I'm sorry for my poor English. Thanks.
