Description User image Masaki Katakai 2007-04-11 19:48:57 PDT
I started using Thunderbird 2 RC 1 for Windows. I downloaded Japanese version.

The behavior has been changed around mailnews.reply_header_locale and

user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_locale", "en-US");
user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_type", 2);

I set the locale to "en-US", but the compose window inserts Japanese header,
it should be English.

Are you saying it worked before? If not -> bug 211004.
Comment 2 User image Masaki Katakai 2007-04-15 13:48:40 PDT
I see, thank you for the info.

I mean actually the behavior has been changed from Beta2.

When I set these my prefs,

user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_locale", "en-US");
user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_type", 2);

It returns,

   On ..., ... wrote:

  (...), ... <japanese>

in Japanese locale.

When I checked the properties files of Japanese, these strings
have been localized at RC1. Is this correct? 

These keys are now localized at RC1.

mailnews.reply_header_authorwrote = 
mailnews.reply_header_ondate =

Should I need to change bug category to localization?

I think the mailnews.reply_header_locale is only supposed to affect the time/date format.

With beta2, was is possible to get anything other than the en-US values? Like what happened if you set it to ja-JP or an empty string.

I see, Thank you very much, Magnus.

OK, I should have filed this to localization category and the synopsis
should be "header description has been changed from beta2".

I'll change this to other category.

I filed a new bug in localization category bug 377690 and
will close this as INVALID.

Thank you very much for help.
