Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6

When hovering over the throbber in Mozilla Firebird, a tooltip shows up, saying,
"Go to the Mozilla Firebird home page." When you click on the throbber, it leads
to http://www.mozilla.org/ , which is Mozilla.org's home page.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. If the throbber isn't already on your toolbar, go to View | Toolbars |
Customize..., drag the throbber to one of the toolbars, and click OK.
2. Hover over the throbber for a few seconds.
3. Click on the throbber.
Actual Results:  
After hovering, the tooltip said, "Go to the Mozilla Firebird home page." After
clicking, Mozilla Firebird went to http://www.mozilla.org/ .

Expected Results:  
Either the tooltip should read, "Go to the Mozilla home page," or clicking on
the throbber should lead to http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firebird/ .

Using standard English (US) distribution.

confirming.

It's easy to fix (browser.throbber.url).

Ever confirmed: true
we currently use 

pref("browser.throbber.url","chrome://navigator-region/locale/region.properties");

either fix this to chrome://browser-region/locale/region.properties or fix the
chrome://navigator-region/locale/region.properties file, which pints to old
mozilla URLs. There are severall usages of both in all.js.
