Mozilla can now render Unicode strings in window title in Unicode-based MS Windows systems (great job!), but there's still a little problem. If a mail's subject is in MIME-type but the encoding is wrong (cf attachment), even if the user chooses the right encoding from "View" menu, mail-window title bar won't reflect the change. PS: I hesitated between "I18N" and "MIME" while choosing "Component". Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 108673 [details] Encoding should be Big5 instead of Latin1 The subject should be in Big5, but MIME-type wrongly indicates it as Latin-1. If we use "View" > "Character coding" to force Big5, title bar still won't reflect the change.

widget is unicode enabled. mail/news app needs to send a correct unicode string to the title bar (widget) when the unicode decoder is changed manually. mail issue. assign to nhotta

So, what about this bug? A little additional info to this bug: after we've selected the correct encodage for the subject so that it's displayed correctly inside the message pane, neither "Reply", "Reply All" nor "Forward" would use the correct encoding that we've just specified. They just use the default one.
Created attachment 158291 [details] Subject is in Big5 but without MIME type Here's another test case, similar to the first one. In this test case, the subject is in Big5 but without MIME-type, that's why in the next image (left), you could see that the window title bar displays squares and the Subject field has question marks. Then after we choose the correct encoding, ie Big5, the Subject field displays correctly but the title bar doesn't reflect the change, as you could see in the image. OTOH, once again, Reply, Reply-All and Forward don't care about what encoding user has chosen :(
this has little to do with bug 9449. it's purely a mailnews issue. David and Scott, is there any callback we can invoke to propagate the change made in View | Character Encoding to the message list pane and in the window title bar?

Now it works correctly right away. Thunderbird 52.1.1 (32-bit) Windows 7 64-bit
