When I install a more recent version of Chatzilla than the one that comes with the mozilla application Suite (from http://www.hacksrus.com/~ginda/chatzilla/), Chatzilla will stop working and display funny error messages instead. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install the german language pack 2. Set the language to german :D 3. Install the newest chatzilla version from http://www.hacksrus.com/~ginda/chatzilla/ 4. Restart Mozilla and try to run Chatzilla Actual Results: Error messages in the Chatzilla window. Expected Results: Open the normal Chatzilla Window. This behaviour can be fixed by removing the chatzilla part from the language pack (though Chatzilla obviously won't be translated afterwards). Open the Mozilla language pack (mozilla-1.7.7.de-AT.langpack.xpi) with some zip tool (like 7zip or whatever), go to /chrome and extract the file de-AT.jar. Then, Open that file with your zip tool and remove the directory /locale/de-AT/chatzilla. Then pack the file back into the original XPI. Then, extract and open the install.js file from the XPI and remove the line containing chatzilla (something like registerChrome(chromeType, cf, localeName + "chatzilla/");) and pack the install.js file back into the archive. Now remove the original language pack from Mozilla and install this new, modified version. Chatzilla should now work once more :)

It's enough to switch the selectedLocale back to en-US. This is a WONTFIX for me in the German language pack until we support source L10n though...

wtf? This is an obvious bug, which can easily be fixed, so why will this not be fixed? I know its enough to put the language back to english, but that's really just a very poor hack.
Sorry, but it can _not_ easily be fixed (other than packing the relevant L10n with the ChatZilla install)... The other possible solution would be to split up the German L10n pack in a few smaller packs that need to be installed seperately, and I don't want to do that.
