I came here from bug 1491562 comment #8. Already broken in TB 60 ESR.
We should look at this one one day.

You beat me. I synchronized subdialogs.js with the m-c version.

Geoff and Richard, I prefer to keep in sync with FF as much as we can here. Apart from one hunk, this seems reasonable. Could you please cast an eye onto it. Thanks.

r+ with the comment addressed.

I tried this the other day when looking for the missing Fluent labels and that doesn't work, so we can't port it.

Thanks, I prefer the other patch if you approve.

Maybe we can use the "small" solution for TB 60 since keeping in sync is not required there.
Addressed comment. I saw no difference with or without this hunk, especially in the Fonts dialog.

Carrying over the r+ and f? from previous patch but waiting for the check-in needed.

When operating the language alternatives menu, you get this in the error console (and the debug windows if you have one):
TypeError: is undefined; can't access its "mozSubdialogReady" property - subdialogs.js:279:5

As I said, I saw this the other day when I was looking for the missing Fluent strings.

Might as well assign this to somebody who made a decent effort. :)
