Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; pt-BR; rv:1.8.1.7) Gecko/20070914 Firefox/2.0.0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; pt-BR; rv:1.8.1.8pre) Gecko/20071011 Sunbird/0.7

When we set a custom reminder for a task, then go back to the task window, a description appears for the reminder time right by the reminder menu. But it says "event" instead of "task". For example: "15 minutes before event begins".
I found out that the file chrome/prototypes/sun-calendar-event-dialog.properties lacks distinct entities for task and event. Instead, it has common entities used for both tasks and events:
reminderCustomOriginBegin
reminderCustomOriginEnd
These entities have texts for events.
IMHO, there should be specific entries for events and tasks, so each one would be worded accordingly.
Thanks,
Emerson

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create or edit a task
2.Set a custom reminder
Actual Results:  
In "Reminder" field, a note shows saying reminder time like "<time> before/after EVENT begins/ends"

Expected Results:  
It should say "<time> before/after TASK begins/ends"

Hi. Just to add that this still happens in 0.9pre 20080806. Also, the miswording appears both in the task and recurrence edit windows.
