Build Identifier: â€"

Check out the screenshot.

Reproducible: Always
Couldn't open the provided screenshot... also, this bug report is incomplete... it seems almost invalid as there are no details given.

The url didn't work due to special characters in the file name, but going up one level you could access. I've changed the name and it should be okay now. Thanks!

The screenshot speaks by itself, that's why I didn't add any more comments. There are no steps to reproduce other than run the application and I don't know what the expected result is because I don't know what should be instead of the corrupted characters (I just know â€" is not the expected output). 

I hope this helps.

Regarding the screenshot: It is easier to add them as an attachment to the bug report. This way readers of the bug report can always look at it and don't depend on some external resources that might be taken off the web.

Back to the issue: Looks like some translation glitch. What Sunbird localization do you use? Can you post the UserAgent string  from the About Sunbird page?

Thanks, I didn't see where to attach the screenshot but 'll keep it in mind for future bugs. Sorry, it's the first time I do this. THanks for your patience!

I guess this is what you're asking for:

I can reproduce using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; pt-PT; rv: Gecko/20080917 Sunbird/0.9.

I can't reproduce anymore using the latest test build Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; pt-PT; rv: Gecko/20091202 Calendar/1.0b1pre.

Looks like the issue has already been corrected during localization work of Sunbird/Lightning 1.0b1.

Thanks, Stefan. There are no updates yet, so I guess I will see the fix when version 1.0b1 is released. 

Thanks a lot for your work!
