Build 2000112004 / Win2k (DE) / Athlon 650 / 320MB RAM I have installed the localisation XPI de-at for the nightly builds from http://www.kairo.at/mozilla, (file)-=> http://www.hirsch.sth.ac.at/mozilla/de-AT.xpi. If I open the preferences directly after open Mozilla the preferences open incomplete and I get 2 console warnings (look at the attachment) If I open the preferenes after I had load a File or URL first, the preferneces open fine. If I switch back to english I haven´t this problem. This seems not to be a bug of the XPI File (Kairos comment)
not a problem after i installed 2000.11.21.08 [comm verif bits, installer blob] on win2k. i18n/l10n problem?

hmm, this problem definately doesn't come from my L10n files, I discussed about this problem with Matti on IRC a ling time... If he opens the window after having a page loaded, he gets the window correctly, with all the strings (and I don't do more than changing strings with this locale). He gets the bug only when he is "fast enough" at opening the pref window. I'm not sure where this bug is originating but I assume if could be pref backend, that's why he filed the bug there... :) I'm not able to deal with that issue. Matti: what start page setting do you have? does moz load about:blank or a web page on startup? Does this also happen if you switch back to en-US?
btw, this worksforme in my 2000-11-20-06-Mtrunk linux with de-AT locale and LCARStrek skin applied.
My first comment is wrong. I see this problem also if I had loaded a page/file. If I run mozilla with -console, I see this incomplete preferences. If I close this incomplete prefernces dialog and reopen the preferences, the preferences dialog comming up completely. If I load mozilla without -console and open the preferences, mozilla hang before I see the preferences dialog. If I switched my sidebar on, I haven´t this problem !! If I switch back to en-US I also haven´t this problem ! I have deleted my old mozilla build and my profile directory. And I deleted my mozregistry.dat in c:\winnt. After that I had uncompressed the talkback-Win32.zip, created a new profile and installed the de-AT. If I switch now to de-AT and switch off my sidebar, I have this problem.
Hmm, I don't understand this problem, can't reproduce it and have no clue where it's coming from... I'm almost sure it doesn't come from my localised files - but maybe it shows up if you select a localization different from en-US, like your description tells. I'm sure I can't resolve this bug without knowing what's going on there... and as long as I can't see it (wfm). Anyone knowing what could happen here?
Looks like Mozilla fails to load this file: http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/xpfe/components/prefwindow/resources/locale/en-US/unix/platformPrefOverlay.dtd Please refer to http://www.mozilla.org/projects/l10n/mlp_what2.html#platform for platform-specific files.
Tao, thx. I didn't realize the differences between the platform-specific files are that big... I'll look into it - though I dislike the idea of having at least two .xpi files for de-AT. Why is it called "cross platform" [install|architecture|anything] then???

Ever confirmed: true
I'm currently creating all those XPI files on Linux, derived from Linux Mozilla nightlies, as I'm very rarely using Windows nowadays. That's why Windows is missing some entities in this .dtd file. I filed bug 61863 for the L10n issue we ran in here. I think it's bad if we have to provide different XPI packages for every platform, but that's what we currently would have to do. This bug won't fix as long as Mozilla's current platform specific structure doesn't chage and I don't use en-US.jar Windows version as a source for those XPI packs :(
hmm, I perhaps should also tell you what I've done :) as 61863 was marked a dupe of 61626, I also changed dependency reflectiong this...
Just realised this should go into component for de-AT...

This error occurs for me as well! Nightly Mozilla (2001020904) and nightly de-at translation.
Because of bug 61626, this happens to everyone on windows using nightly de-AT packs (created from linux builds). As we already have stated, this shouldn't be the case, and it will get fixed with 61626. BTW: Mozilla 0.7 de-AT German pack was produced from a win32 version and therefore doesn't have this problem. Sorry, I won't change my OS because of this bug, and I don't have the time to boot windows, download a different build and create localisation for it that often. Until 61626 is fixed, you have to live with that bug when using de-AT nightly packs. sorry.
Hmm, could someone on win32 try this with a nightly build/pack 2001-03-18-09 or later? This should be fixed now (note bug 72501 - platform specific texts are untranslated). I'll mark it fixed, reopen it when it is still happening, verify when it's really solved. Thanks!
