translating "Display Name" to hebrew hangs mozilla
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; he-IL; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; he-IL; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 translating the string at http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/mailnews/addrbook/resources/locale/en-US/addressBook.properties#50 to hebrew crashes mozilla, if you select the collected addresses. i've seen this at least since mozilla 1.0.0 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.translate the above string to hebrew (i didn't hear reports of other languages with this problem). enter any text, it doesn't have to have a meaning :) 2.make sure you have a contact with a dislplay name field filled 3.select that contact from the personal address book 4.select collected addresses address book Actual Results: mozilla hangs Expected Results: collected addresses should appear
oops, didn't see mailnews has localization component too

This looks as if it might be related to bug 160211, which I never managed to reproduce.
unlike bug 160211, in this bug, mozilla hangs even if the contact is all in english. CCing mwolf, who originally found the source of the hang.
I can't reproduce this one either. Is it a crash (as in the summary) or a hang (as in the comments). If a crash, do you have a talkback ID?
I tested the he-IL langpack 02 for Mozilla 1.3 and the issue occurs only if the name field of 1 address book contact is empty. Then Mozilla freezes when you want to go from one contact to another. If the name field isn't empty for all contact this issue doesn't occur. Michael Wolf
Summary: translating "Display Name" to hebrew crashes mozilla → translating "Display Name" to hebrew hangs mozilla
the beta pack i released (http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/hebmoz/langheil1.3v0.2.xpi) has the "Display Name" in english, to prevent the hang. did you try to localize it? the problem you describe is different, and i think i encountered it in the past, but maybe didn't report it yet.
I changed the propertyDisplayName and propertyScreenName strings to Hebrew and the problem doesn't occur if the name field has valid values (names) for all contacts. I tested it with your 1.3v02 langpack.
since i couldn't reproduce this myself in mozilla 1.4, i'm closing on WFM. my latest pack, for mozilla 1.4, has a bug in editing address book cards. i'll upload a fixed pack today or tomorrow to my site, and i assume MLP staff will update mozilla.org in a few days.
