Installing Thunderbird from scratch and keeping the "Use Global inbox" option checked while creating your account will leave you with certain folder names in english. If you restart Thunderbird, the folder names appear in German. Seen on the German 1.0 RC1 build (20041201) on Mac OS 10.3.6. Also seen on older builds (0.9 sv-SE). To reproduce: 1. Install Thunderbird from scratch (trash your old TB folder) 2. Start Thunderbird and choose to not import anything 3. When the account manager opens, choose to set up a email account 4. When creating your account, keep the "Use Global inbox" option checked. 5. Finish creating your account and look at the folder names. Notice that only the two first are in German. 6. Restart Thunderbird and notice that all the folder names are in German.
I see this bug, too, but I believe this is a long-known issue, at least I can remember having read about it several times already. I do not know wheter a bug for that one exists already, but it is a minor bug anyways - a workaround as simple a a restart of Thunderbird.
Reporters, does this still occur in Thunderbird 3 Beta 1?
From David's comments in another bug I bet it does, and it shouldn't take long to test.
Created attachment 355091 [details] screenshot of German Mac TB 3 Beta 1 I waded through German in the account wizard, and here's what I had ended up with, possibly a WFM in Mac.
> possibly a WFM in Mac. Not for "Local Folders" though, but it remained in English after I restarted German Thunderbird 3 Beta 1. Should possibly bring this to the attention of the German localizer.

(In reply to comment #7) > Nope. David's got a fix for it in bug 464425. I'm duping this bug to bug 464425 then, since it has morphed.
