Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; de-AT; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; de-AT; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130

While translating Mozilla/Phoenix into German, I noticed that sometimes
different phrases are used for almost the same problem. Eg:
"Printing failed for some reason."
instead of:
"An unknown error occurred while printing" that's usually used.

This occurred in: Mozilla/Platform neutral/global/MT_default/printing.properties
phrase: NS_ERROR_FAILURE



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.



Expected Results:  
Please change that phrase, if you think it could be replaced by something more
common like: "An unknown error occurred while printing"
And would you consider to always use some standard phrases?
It would make translating a lot esasier.
To printing....

patch: change it to an "unknown error"

"some error" is really hard to translate and doesn't say anything. Other places
use an "unknown error", which is better to translate, tells (IMHO) better what
we mean, and is more consistent with other places in our code.
