I have no mean to guess what the new window pref size should be as I have no Mac and as l10n cvs is frozen. Could someone give me the way to handle this, as I don't know if this is a blocker for TB 2.0 and we don't want to block or delay this release because of fr locale.
confirming, I see this to on a french mac build.

We haven't actually tagged the tree yet for tb2 so there's still time (albeit not much) to try to fix this if we can figure out the right size to use.
Ever confirmed: true
Cedric, I changed prefWindow.styleMac to 55em for french and while I can't read french, it looked to be the right width for the preferences dialog on the mac.

Flore, can you help me confirm my findings ASAP on your Mac? You can do this by: 

1) Creating a userChrome.css file in a directory called chrome in your profile:

2) Add the following style rule to userChrome.css:
#MailPreferences {
  width: 55em !important;

I can land this before we tag if ya'll need help with this.
Scott, 55em is ok for the two tabs.
Thank you.
