Camino 1.1a1

The pop-up blocker message "A pop-up has been blocked for this website" is confusing--the pop-up has been blocked for the user, not for the Web site. It might be less confusing to say just "A pop-up has been blocked."

Also, perhaps it should say "pop-up window" (as it does in the preferences dialog) instead of just "pop-up."
If we do anything here, we need to do it by 1.1b1 at the latest.

"Camino has blocked a pop-up window [on|from] this website."

I think the text suggested in comment 1 is good.

I don't think adding 'window' is worthwhile, as it makes the text longer without adding any real clarity.

We should also think about s/website/page/ since we've moved other text to say page.

Pink, this just text in a nib, so it doesn't really need a patch. What say you to:
"Camino has blocked a pop-up from this page."
(or alternately, "Camino has blocked a pop-up from this website")?
that's fine, just be consistent.

Checked in as "Camino has blocked a pop-up from this website." (page didn't quite feel right in that context somehow when I tried it) on trunk and MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH.

I'm still getting the old text ("A pop-up has been blocked for this website") with Camino 1.1.a2. Is the new text supposed to appear in that build?

The nib changes got stomped (probably by the wrapping stuff), thanks for noticing.  Re-checked in.
