when the interface is aligned to the right, e.g. when using a RTL
language (like hebrew or arabic), go to tools > form manager > edit form info >
other saved information, url-specific subcategory. the URL and Field columns
contain data in latin characters, and therefore should remain LTR even when
using a RTL language pack

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.aligning the interface to the right: add these lines to the file intl.css, in
the locale\en-US\global, in the en-US.jar file (the language pack file, in the
chrome folder):

/*make UI RTL */

window,dialog,wizard,page { direction: rtl; }

menu { direction: rtl; }

outliner { direction: rtl; }

/*
 * make sure search from address bar remains in RTL
 */

#urlbar .autocomplete-search-engine
{
direction: rtl !important;
}

/*
 * keep Composer <HTML> Source tab LTR
 */

#content-source,
#doctype-text { direction: ltr; }


2.start mozilla.
3. go to the mentioned dialogue box.
Actual Results:  
said columns are aligned to the right

Expected Results:  
columns should be aligned to the left

a similar problem with most other url fields throughout the UI was fixed by
smontagu in bug 157607.
