Originally reported as bug 4336.

There is hardocoded space inserted before success.title.after label which is problematic when one wants to use sth like comma after login name. (affects l10n and en-US)
The sentence is like this:
&success.title.before;<FirstName> <LastName>&success.title.after; .
The order and also the space is hardcoded.
Have you left FirstName or LastName blank when you created the account?
The whole string could probably be refined into one string with a placeholder for the name so that localizers can play with the position. Were this not in some jquery code I could probably do it.

I don't see FirstName and LastName fields on fresh start or when getting new account…
I only see one field, "Your name, or nickname" with search button on the right.
Maybe that is the problem.
OK, I tested it and I can confirm the problem.

The input box placeholder text says "Your name, or nickname". But the code of the dialog in several places splits the input text into a firstName and lastName. And then it often contatenates them together with a space so that if lastname is empty a trailing space will remain.

Attached patch patchSplinter Review
The attached patch removes the potential trailing space (via .trim) in two places. It does not change the logic wrt. the existing code already coping with empty last name.
