the URL field in the dialog to attach a web page to a message turns RTL when
using a RTL language pack (like hebrew or arabic), but URLs are in latin
characters and so the field should stay 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

#doctype-text { direction: ltr; }
2. start mozilla
3. open a new email message window (file|new|message)
4. in the message compose window, select file|attach web page.

Actual Results:  
the URL is aligned right

Expected Results:  
the URL should be aligned left

smontagu already fixed a bunch of these cases in bug 157607. basicly you should
add the class "uri-element" to the field, which should be enough to fix the problem.
