Non-ascii signature file doesn't work BuildID: 2002041505 - 1.0.0 Branch build on Mac OSX Steps: 1. Open Mail 2. Go to Edit>Mail & News Account Settings 3. Select any mail account 4. Check the box for "Attach this signature" and enter the path to a signature file with a non-ascii name and non-ascii content. Then click OK. Result: 1. Click on "Compose button". The content of signature file are NOT displayed in the body of message compose window. 2. Go back to Edit>Mail & News Account Settings, the path to the signature file get erased. Expected: 1. A path to non ascii signature file should be displayed correctly all the time 2. Non ascii content of signature file should be displayed in the compose window. Note: 1. I tried both latin-1 and Hiragana/Katakana. Neither of them worked. 2. If you use a signature file with ascii name, it works 3. This was observed on Mac OSX. I haven't tried Windows yet
>4. Check the box for "Attach this signature" and enter the path to a signature >file with a non-ascii name and non-ascii content. Then click OK. Could you separate the test case into two, one with non ascii file name the other with non ascii content?

Let me back off and rephrase the whole thing. 1. System locale set to English 2. System locale set to Japanese The original bug description applies to #1 for which I'll add more comment later. Regarding #2 (Japanese system locale), this is what I've observed. I tried: A. Signature file with Japanese file name AND Japanese content B. Signature file with English file name AND Japanese content For both A and B, I am able to see a path to signature file correctly all the time in Edit|Mail & News Account Settings window. However, when I click on Compose button, in compose windows, the non-ascii content of signature file looks garbled. The default encoding for message composition and display is ISO-2022-JP. I'll attach the screenshot later (now, I don't know how to this on Mac)
With the system locale set to Enlgish (#1 case above), A. Signature file with Japanese file name AND Japanese content B. Signature file with English file name AND Japanese content Case A shows the same problem which I originally mentioned. (1. Click on "Compose button". The content of signature file are NOT displayed in the body of message compose window. 2. Go back to Edit>Mail & News Account Settings, the path to the signature file get erased or shows the previous English file) Case B does NOT show this kind of problem. But in Compose windows, the content looks garbled. (Just like what I observed on system with Japanese locale)
<Case A shows the same problem which I originally mentioned. <(1. Click on "Compose button". The content of signature file are NOT displayed <in the body of message compose window. the signature file with .rtf extension doesn't work for ascii name neither. html though works fine for both. cc'ing to core qa. Is there a bug for plain text signature on MacOSX? Thanks.

>Naoki, is this a dup of bug 52248 ? bug 52248 only mentions unix plaform. It looks different. "Non-ascii signature file doesn't work" There are two types of signatrue, HTML and plain text. Which case is this bug about?
I tried HTML signature file. Revised steps: (on both windows and macosx with JA system locale) 1. Using a browser's composer, create JA HTML signature file and set encoding to ISO-2022-JP 2. Set this file as you signature file in Edit|Mail and Newsgroup account settings. 3. Click on Compose button. Make sure your default encoding for viewing and composing msg is set to ISO-2022-JP 4. Your signature looks weird 5. Compose and send a msg to yourself. 6. In the received msg, the signature looks OK. Note: In step 1 above, if you use Shift_JIS when creating a signature file, it looks OK in compose window.
Summary: Non-ascii signature file doesn't work → Non-ascii HTML signature file doesn't work
It also happens with plain text signatures (ISO-8859-1 with german umlauts)
>It also happens with plain text signatures (ISO-8859-1 with german umlauts) Please specify your environment (OS, default locale and Mozilla build info).
Since this happens both on mac and windows, I'm changing platform and os info.
OS: MacOS X → All
Hardware: Macintosh → All
I have seen it on Linux with de_DE@euro (ISO-8859-15) locale.
Naoki, I think this bug needs more attention. Since ISO-2022-JP is most frequently used as an encoding method for our mail,we'd better support signature file with the same encoding. Now, signature file with ISO-2022-JP encoding looks garbled in the compose window.

Still reproducible on 1217 trunk build.

Cannot get swedish characters 8859-10 in signature file to come up correctly when composing new message. Have tried most everything. /Carl Stenquist
In the wake of the fix for bug 201071 (current 1.8.1 branch and trunk), I'm wondering about this bug's status. With that fix, a sig (for plain text or HTML) will be recognized if it's encoded either in the system default encoding, or in UTF-8. This should be true for all platforms. See bug 362675, which seems to reflect directly on comment 21 (assuming Mr Stenqvist is using Windows).
Not reproduce on Thunderbird 3.1. We should dup of bug 201071
