User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; ro; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/2009042523 Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) Firefox/3.0.10 Build Identifier: version 188.8.131.52 (20090409) I am running a stock Ubuntu 9.04 machine, with stock Thunderbird 184.108.40.206. The system is set to Romanian language. UTF-8 is set in Thunderbird -> Preferences -> Display -> Fonts -> Character Encoding (both drop lists; "Use default encoding in replies" is checked). When sending e-mails, contacts are automatically added to "Personal Address Book" as usual. However, when trying to manually add a contact in the addressbook, the following error message pops up, denying operation: <!DOCTYPE overlay SYSTEM "chrome://messenger/locale/addresbook/abcardOverlay.dtd"> Setting the Ubuntu system in English (form the System menu - Language support) solves the problem, so I guess is a matter of encoding/localization. I guess the bug is not specific to Romanian language. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set a stock Ubuntu 9.04 system with Romanian interface 2. Install Thunderbird from official repository 3. Try to manually add a new contact in the AddressBook Actual Results: When trying to manually add a contact in the addressbook, the following error message pops up, denying operation: <!DOCTYPE overlay SYSTEM "chrome://messenger/locale/addresbook/abcardOverlay.dtd"> Expected Results: Adding contacts and lists should perform normally. The following Unicode codes are widely used in Romanian language (not exclusively): 0218, 0219, 021A, 021B System-wide support for Romanian language is correctly implemented in current Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian and probably others (still not in CentOS 5.3).
Can you go to Tools -> Error Console and see if anything appears when you try to manually add a contact? If so copy and paste it here please.
It's a localization fault, but Thunderbird 2 is not available in Romanian, there is just a language pack on addons.mozilla.org.
Could not reproduce the bug with the addon. It might be a problem only on Ubuntu.
@mark Hello, I'm getting two errors: Eroare: OnLoadNewCard is not defined Fișier sursă: chrome://messenger/content/addressbook/abNewCardDialog.xul Rândul: 1 Eroare: NewCardOKButton is not defined Fișier sursă: chrome://global/content/bindings/dialog.xml Rândul: 356 Regards, Răzvan
This bug is obsolete? Perhaps fixed?
Thanks - it is fixed in Ubuntu 10.10 that I'm running now, I cannot verify for the initial Ubuntu version (9.04). Răzvan
Razvan, perhaps this bug is resolved now?
