Try to open preferences window for snowl I tried this under my Debian Sarge Laptop as well: still the same result.
Reproduced this, too. Windows XP, FF3.5b5 & FF3.5rc1
Also reproduces this problem on Windows XP SP3, FF3.5b4 & FF3.5final
I have the same problem with Snowl 0.3pre2 on current FF3.5final on Vista, tested with Enterprise and Home Premium, both German. I think I found the source as I have a workaround. This also indicates the cause: I am using a German Firefox. I had a look into the preferences.xul-file in chrome.jar and looked in the folder "de-DE". That content, compared to the folder "en-US" is way too old. A quick an dirty hack is to copy/overwrite the contents of en-US to the de-DE (or any else incomplete) folder and live with a not translated version. If I find the time I might post a translation for German that is on the current feature level. Another question is: Is only German (that is folder de-DE) affected or is this true for other languages, too? And if so: Does the plugin need translations (that go out of sync) when the interfaces change fast?
I can confirm what Dennis Wagner wrote. He's right. I downloaded Firefox 3.5 and installed the 0.3pre2. I used the german version and I got: XML-Verarbeitungsfehler: Nicht definierte Entität Adresse: chrome://snowl/content/river.xul?collection=1&period=last7days Zeile Nr. 99, Spalte 9: <toolbarbutton id="columnsButton" --------^ After switching to the en-US version I have no problems anymore. Could someone try this with different languages?
I'm also experiencing problems with Snowl on Firefox 3.5.2 (German version): * It's not possibile to open the Snowl-specific settings dialog (--> "Nicht definierte Entität") * In the "View"-Menu, Snowl creates an empty entry * In the "Tools"-Menu, Snowl creates a very big empty entry * The Firefox settings dialog also throws an exception on its bottom (--> "Nicht definierte Entität")
Same with Snowl 0.3pre3 on Firefox 3.5.3 (German version)
i believe this has been fixed as of the snowl 0.3 release; please reopen if this still occurs. it's a bit of an admin problem, as the release version needs to have new strings added in en-US for incomplete locales, but the babelzilla version needs to have this undone, and the dev version builds should be en-US only..

Resolution: --- → FIXED
I lived with my local fix for some time and just recently upgraded to FF 3.6 and Snowl 0.3: The issue is fixed for me, I recommend closing this one (can't verify myself).
