Profile migration does not migrate Accept Language and default charset
Profile migration does not migrate accept language and default charset. Steps of reproduce 1. Use 4.7 JA build to create Japanese profile Accept Language is set to Japanese [ja], and the defaut charset is set to Shift_JIS. 2. Launch Profile Migration from Netscape 6 3. Launch Netscape 6 from the migrated profile 4. Open Preferences dialog 5. Select Navigator-Language in the Preferences dialog On the right side for "Languages in order of preferences:" is English [en] And, Default Charset Coding is "Western (ISO-8859-1)". Expected result Language should be set to "Japanese [ja]" Default Charset Coding should be set to "Japanese (Shift_JIS)". Tested 2000-10-14-08 MN6 Mac build and 2000-10-15-08 MN6 Win32 build.
As far as I know the migration code doesn't change any prefs relating to default char-set. Could you give me the following information: 1. What is the pref and its value that actually gets set when using 4.7? 2. Open the prefs.js file that got migrated and tell me if that pref is there and if its value had changed. See what I believe is happening here is that mozilla is ignoring the old pref and its value.

nominating for nsbeta1.
re-nominating. See mail that says we're using "nsbeta1" to mean "nsfix" regardless of which shipment, and the target milestone to indicate when it should be done. for example, nsbeta1+ and mozilla0.9.2 is a perfectly reasonable state.
however, dbragg isn't doing profile migration anymore. Trying racham.

Marking as Major | P2 | TM = 0.9.2, as migration needs to work smoothly for the users this round (e.g. Project Goals). Vishy - Let's review during i18n triage.
Severity: normal → major
Priority: P3 → P2
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9.2
moving to 0.9.3
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.2 → mozilla0.9.3
Doesn't look like this is getting fixed before the freeze tonight. Pushing out a milestone. Please correct if I'm mistaken.
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.3 → mozilla0.9.4
moving to 0.9.5.
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.4 → mozilla0.9.5
moving to 0.9.6
really moving to 0.9.6
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.5 → mozilla0.9.6
moving to mozilla1.0
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.6 → mozilla1.0

is this still valid even though it was written against netscape 6?

sorry for the spam. making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs. filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.

I'm going to assume that after 12 years (and no response to the 2006 inquiry in comment 15), this has been solved somehow. Resolving WFM.
