Created attachment 415343 [details] [diff] [review] rm You only include global.dtd when you are going to use &locale.dir;, that's all it gives you. You only use &locale.dir; for two things: to set the dir attribute on the body element in XHTML, and to set the chromedir attribute on an XUL element when you then plan on using that in CSS, in 1.9.1 or earlier where :-moz-locale-dir didn't exist, to do things differently for ltr and rtl. Since nothing is trying to style searchInput or PopupGlodaAutocomplete based on their chromedir, I'm going to guess that they just sort of wandered into the glodasearch branch of their own accord, without anyone ever really feeling any actual need for them.

Also, thank you very much for explaining why we don't want it.
