Description

17 years ago
Found in 2001052404 build on MacOS9.1-ja.

Installer shows part of Japanese character instead of ellipsis (...) on Japanese 
version of MacOS9.1.  This occurs on the Proxy Settings button (screenshot 
attached) and in the "Extracting installer files..." message.

Steps:
1) Download installer build
2) Begin install; click to the page that has the Proxy Settings button.  The 
character appears where the ellipsis should be.

Mass-moving lower-priority 0.9.5 bugs off to 0.9.6 to make way for remaining
0.9.4/eMojo bugs, and MachV planning, performance and feature work. If you
disagree with any of these targets, please let me know.
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.5 → mozilla0.9.6

Japanese charset encoding assigns a different character for the code point where
ellipsis is assigned in MacRoman.
Usually that can be avoided by using three dots ("...").
Or L10N might be able to change the font but the bug is about US build on JA system.

This is not only for the button. On the download dialog, all "FROM", "TO", ... 
fields have the ellipsis when the path is too long. This ellipsis shows garbled 
on Japanese OS.

Those ellipsis are hardcoded, not even localizable. We need to change them to 
three-dot.

Quoth Steve Dagley: "The Mac installer code was never Carbonized and there is no
intention to ever change that."
