Please get a newer release (1.5rc2) and try again.
Still problems?
The problem is that the localization pack you are using (German?) does not
include a translation of some of those entities.  This is a bug in the
localization pack....

I get this bug always when Mozilla asks if I want to download or not.
Is there any statement from Roland Kaiser (maintainer of de-AT-lang pack)? Or a
new version? :-)

Is there any workaround? Any line I could edit manually?

What language pack (version) did you use? Is it correct to assume you're using a
Mozilla 1.4 final build?

No, I use the very newest versions I could get.
Mozilla is 1.5rc1 (did not try rc2 yet) and the newest language pack from

I also got the problem described in bug #220166 but this ought to be a temporary
issue. But This one seems to be present since 1.4 and also in the nightly I use.
But it's the same error (and also the only one I can see), so it seems not to be
a temporary prob. Sorry for the version differences, I thought this is about the
1.5 series. Okay, I'm affected with version 1.5rc and nightly language pack.

There is no language pack for any 1.5rc version on - the
nightly XPI packs do only work for trunk nightlies of the specified date.
Additionally, you should try to kill the XUL fastload file (XUL.mfl) in your
profile directory.

Ah, okay. I think I misunderstood something there. But everything works, except
the "What do you want to do with that file"-dialog. :)

I'll try to kill that file and wait for the 1.5 final release.

Comment 9

Okay, I solved it for myself.

Killing XUL.mfl did not do anything. But I suppose, the behavior of the checkbox
in the "what-to-do"-dialog has been changed recently.
The entity that mozilla requests is &alwaysAsk.label; and the entity provided in
de-AT-lang-Pack (latest nightly) is &alwaysHandle.label; and I think
alwaysHandle is the opposite of alwaysAsk. :-)

So I changed the entity names in the file specified by the error message in the
JAR archive and it works! I had no chance to download a newer version of mozilla
nightly, but every user in the same situation as I am in should be able to
correct this easily.

-->INVALID, as is comes from an incompatibility with a language pack to a
different build than the one the lanbguage pack was made for, and that's
improper ("invalid") use of the langauge pack.

Nice to see though that yau could resolve your problem yourself ;-)
