Most of the entities in this dtd talk about "website", "webmasters" and "browser", while this dialog is also displayed in Thunderbird for mail server certificate.

 40 <!ENTITY newserver.title    "Website Certified by an Unknown Authority">
 41 <!ENTITY newserver.reasons  "Possible reasons for this error:">
 42 <!ENTITY newserver.reason1  "- Your browser does not recognize the Certificate Authority that issued the site's certificate.">
 43 <!ENTITY newserver.reason2  "- The site's certificate is incomplete due to a server misconfiguration.">
 44 <!ENTITY newserver.notify   "Please notify the site's webmaster about this problem.">

Proposed changes:

"Website"/"Web site"/"site" -> "Server"
"Your browser" -> "&brandShortName;"
"site's webmaster" -> "server's administrator"

As 1.8 l10n is now frozen for Firefox, a temporary solution for the branch me be to use override for this file for Thunderbird, like Firefox does for netError.dtd <>

cc'ing Scott.

newserver.dtd and overrides for Thunderbird

This does what I explained in the previous comment. The patch is intended for  the 1.8 branch.

I think trunk needs the opposite situation (generic newserver.* files in toolkit, and a browser-specific override in Firefox).

Changing &brandShortName; to "Your mail client" so that this works properly. ;-)

Seems like the right thing to do...what do you think, Scott?

David, Scott: any chances for getting this into Tb2? 

Comment 6

Unfortunately, as we're in the string freeze, it's way too late to do anything with this for Tb 2...

While we didn't get this in on the branch in time for thunderbird 2, we can still take this on the trunk. Let me know if you need someone to land this for you! Thanks for the patch.

As I wrote in comment 2, on trunk we need an opposite solution - generic strings in toolkit (which should be good enough for Tb), and browser-specific ones in Firefox. 

This wasn't possible on the branch at the time of filing this bug due to Fx2 string freeze, but there's no string freeze on trunk.

I'm marking this bug as duplicate of bug 385458, which aims to do what I described in comment 8.
