Build 2002051319 of Mozilla sends invalid "Accept-Language" fields. The "Accept-Language" field should identify languages by their two-letter ISO codes, and not by their names in some arbitrarily chosen language. An example "Accept-Language" field from build 2002051319 of Mozilla: Faeroese, Swedish;q=0.87, Danish;q=0.75, Norwegian;q=0.62, Icelandic;q=0.50, German;q=0.37, French;q=0.25, English;q=0.12
reporter: can you please try a more recent build, such as mozilla 1.1? mozilla is designed to send the two character language codes, so i'm really surprised to find that you're seeing this. if you continue to see this problem in mozilla 1.1, then perhaps there is something about your settings that is confusing mozilla into sending such an Accept-Language header. i'd recommend creating a new profile to see if that doesn't help the problem. thx!
Severity: critical → normal
OK. It appears that it was a defect configuration file (which may have been due to a problem in the system that imported the configuration from my old Netscape). There ought to be some kind of validation of the language codes before they are sent out, but now I have at least a personal work-around.
great, i'm glad that solved the problem for you. what version of netscape did you upgrade from? is it possible that you can upload a copy of the "broken" prefs.js file? thx!
