In Appearances > Fonts, if no font is available, it lists "No fonts available
for this language", however, the default size of the preferences dialog prevents
the complete text from being visible.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the preferences dialog.
2. Go to Appearances > Fonts.

Actual Results:  If "No fonts available for this language" appears, it is

Expected Results:  It should not be contatenated.
maybe we should shorten the text to "No fonts available".

If "no fonts available" fits, lets use it.
This is a rather simple and safe fix.  Just shorten the string in JS or XUL,
wherever it occurs.

Is this issue still actual?
Whiteboard: [2012 Fall Equinox][CLOSEME 2012-11-01 INCO]
I do not currently use Seamonkey, but it appears that font inclusions in Windows and/or redesigns of that dialog in Firefox contribute to that issue at least not occuring out of the box. One font type showed as simply a blank for User Defined, so I imagine that's what it'd do if you didn't have a font. So I'm unable to reproduce the issue in Firefox on Windows 7.
