I recently made changes to the form manager preview screen which involved the 
creation of a new file named extensions/wallet/walletpreview/WalletPreview.dtd.  
However that file was never added to the MANIFEST_PROPERTIES file in that 

I believe that this will cause the form-manager preview screen (the screen that 
pops up when you attempt to prefill a form) to have its text missing.  tpreston, 
can you please confirm that this is what is happening on the mac.

If so, the fix is simply to change MANIFEST_PROPERTIES from its current one-line


to the two lines

Yeah morse, this screen is hosed.  There is one line at the top of the dialog 
that says check the items that you would like to have prefilled with a button to 
view stored form data (that works) and then at the bottom of the dialog is a 
line with bypass this screen when prefilling in the future, than OK and cancel 
buttons.  No prefill data

Unless there's something that I don't know about (very possible), I'm not sure 
MANIFEST_PROPERTIES files are used by the mac build.

Oops, Paul, you are right.  This mechanism has long since been obsoleted.

So now I can't explain the problem that Terri is seeing.  In fact, had it been 
the lack of the .dtd file in the manifest, she wouldn't see any of the strings 
at all (she reports she is seeing the string on the top and bottom but the 
middle is missing.

Terri, do you have saved data for the form you are prefilling?  (Although if you 
didn't, you shouldn't be able to even bring up this dialog.)  Also, can you 
reproduce this on other platforms?

Hey morse, I actually can't reproduce on todays build?  But I re-installed on 
mac build 2001032908 and could see this behavior (Have not seen on other 
platforms)  Also, I notice that the dialog that usually say data has been 
captured, has no text?

Now that's a new problem (lack of text in "data has been captured" 
notification).  Is this happening only on the mac or is it cross-platform?  And 
is it still happening?

sorry morse, I have been working on tons of imagelib bugs, but both of these
behaviors are working correctly on the mac (as of 2001040309), "data has been
captured" is in the dialog and the preview screen shows prefill data.  Closing
as fixed
