Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826

special german characters as ä ö ü ß are displayed wrong in the mail preview
window. 
Example: a plain text mail encoded with 

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="ISO-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

contains the following text:

"Viel Spaß wünscht euch euer"

which should be displayed as
"Viel Spaß wünscht euch euer"

When double-clicking on the mail, the content is displayed correctly in the mail
window, only the preview window shows the bug.
The menu entry "View/Character Coding" shows the correct coding of the mail,
only the characters are displayed wrong.
I used Mozilla 1.1b before 1.1 final, and 1.1b did not have this bug.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. receive any mail encoded with charset="ISO-8859-1" or charset="ISO-8859-15",
containing special german characters as ä ö ü ß
2. watch mail in preview window
3. watch mail in mail window and see the difference

Actual Results:  
preview window shows wrong characters

Expected Results:  
both preview window and mail window should display german characters

ok, I fixed this myself. NEVER install Mozilla over any old version (in this
case 1.1b), always install Mozilla into a fresh directory and you wont have any
problems!
Sorry for this spam
