The names of the default bookmark folders ('Personal Toolbar', 'Mozilla Project' and 'Imported IE favorites') should be localizable. They currently (2000-12-15) are not.
I am using Build 2000121514 with Mac OS 9.0.4. When I go to "Manage Bookmarks..." under the "Bookmarks" menu, I have three sections. That is, I have two thin black lines that run the length of the window horizontally, thus creating three seperate sections. This also matches up with the division of my "Bookmarks" menu. I can move my "Personal Toolbar Folder" to any location within the three divisions. However, I cannot move the "Imported IE Favorites" from its current location. I would have to say "confirmed" and "new", but I do not have the priviliges to do so. Maybe somebody could give them to me? ;-)
Reassigned to Allan for the Bookmark issue.

Jonathan Abrams : your issue is not the same. That is part of the "Imported IE favorites should act as a usual bookmark folder" bug, you'll find it easily in Bugzilla. Karl Ove, I'll try to look at it. Given that all your bug reports are correct, i'm marking this New (I'll get you bugzilla priviledges so you can set them to New directly)

This actually appears to be done already. The only remaining hardcoded reference seems to be http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/xpfe/components/bookmarks/src/nsBookmark sService.cpp#158, and that's just the default we fall back on if we can't retrieve it from the properties file for whatever reason. Marking fixed.

Not clear how to verify this; is there a testcase that I can use to verify this? Do I need to wait until a language pack becomes available?
It only works if you create a completely *new* user profile (you loose all your mail, preferences and bookmarks) and choose the appropiate region pack. Also note that you have to use your current profile to download and install that region pack.
Reopening - Following Karl's testcase, I did not see localized bookmark folders after creating a new profile and selecting a new region (the "Imported IE Favorites" folder, however, was localized). This is probably dependent on Bugscape 6828, in which a new region does not get applied when selecting through profile manager.

Note that my last comment was based on testing with 6.1b build (20010607).
including Tao's comment from bug 65251, cc'ing Tao. Apparently, profile-bound resources are not localizable after a profile has been created to prevent loss of user-customized data. See below: ... >As for Content packs - I don't know a great deal about how they work as the >explanation provided isn't terribly detailed. Please refer to http://www.mozilla.org/projects/l10n/mlp_regional.html#regional > Does this mean that if I >switch packs, all my bookmarks I collected in pack A are gone? No, bookmarks and other profile-bound resources are not switchable once the profile is created. > Why do I need >to switch locale packs anyway to adjust bookmarks, isn't that what our >bookmarking system, complete with the ability to organize things into folders, >is for? "Regional pack" switching affects the locality of the default bookmarks which is copied from "[install-dir]/defaults/profile/[region-code]/bookmarks.html" into user profile directory. Once it is created; it's NOT switchable since it might contain user's customization (addition/edit/deletion) which we don't want to tamper with. "Regional switching" do affect the taskbar, Search menu, Home Page URL, etc. Feel free to let me know if more details is needed.
another comment: I just applied the 0.9.1 JP region pack to a trunk build (using Katakai's patch) and although most default bookmarks, the Sidebar and other things are Japanese, "Imported IE Favorites" is still glaring in the "Bookmarks" menu. Wasn't that the original complaint raised by Karl? Jon, maybe we need to retest using 0.9.2 content packs to confirm.

The bookmarks folders mentioned here are defined within the bookmarks.html. To localize the folder names, you'd need to localize the corrresponding entries in bookmarks.html.

See comment 9 and comment 14. Some people expect that a region pack will change default bookmark folders names to its corresponding locale. We have deliberately decided no to do so. I support wonfixing this, if there is not enough user interest. huftis, do you still care about this thing? What are your latest thoughts on this?
