This is very good information.  However, we only handle bugs in Bugzilla.  May I
ask you to move this bug there?  It's probably a dup, but it's probably
important to get you to help confirm that our fixes really work.

I believe this is a dup of 
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=84825 as well. However, it looks 
like the 'Set Master Password' dialog box has changed a bit from the way it was 
when this bug was filed - is it correct?

rangan, in comment # 6
you say that this may be a dupe. However the proposed candidate is already fixed.

ylong: I take it that you're still seeing the behavior on the trunk. Is that right?

Rangan please follow up.

Comment 15

16 years ago
With a trunk build [few days old] on my m/c it appears that both the problems
reported here does not show up any more:
1. The window is resizable
2. The device name displays ok.
Also, the text on cancel button does not spill over. The ok button is not
properly internationalized, though. Snapshot follows.

ylong: If you are still seeing this problem, could you pl let me know your build id?

Comment 17

Yes, the original problems are not existing on N6.2 RTM build, however I just a
little concern about the string "Software Security Deivce" is in English on
Japanese build, is it localizible? cause it was showing "... ... ..." before.

Comment 18

16 years ago
"Software Security Deivce" string is not localizable. Bug 88322 was filed for
the l12y problem on login prompt. Rangan, do you think we need to file seperate
bug for the l12y problem of this string on this particular window?

Comment 19

16 years ago
No - for in both cases the string "Software Security Device" is originally 
obtained from the same place [InternalToken property in pipnss.properties]. So 
once this is localizable we should see it in both windows. 
Also, for external devices - like smart cards, etc, the names are obtained from 
the specific drivers and not from the locale files - so, fixing Bug 88322 would 
still leave them non localizable, unless the devices themselves have locale 

BTW - when I try to d/l a locale content pack with one of the latest daily 
builds, I get an error "You must install the latest version of Netscape in order 
to use the content packs" - can someone throw any light on this issue?

Comment 20

Updating target to 2.2, anyway
Target Milestone: Future → 2.2

Comment 21

I think the language pack you downloaded doesn't sync with the current trunk build. 
It only works for 6.2 build. The error message is kind of misleading.

Comment 22

16 years ago
actually I've found that the following property is used:
in ssl/resources/locale/en-US/pipnss.properties

I believe this file is localizable.
There is one caveat though. These strings have to abide by the pkcs11 specs
which has a fixed sized format of 32 bytes followed by a null byte.
The nss code will pad this with space or truncate. This may affect the ability
to localize this string.

You can try by having a dev env, and checking the value of the
PrivateTokenDescription in you localized version of pipnss.properties.


Comment 23

Changing the summary to reflect the current situation on this i.e. :

The Software Security Device string and the OK button label are not localized
Summary: Change PSM password dialog has cut-off and missed string of Token name → In Change PSM password dialog Token Name and the OK button label are not localized properly

Comment 24

16 years ago
Yuying, what's the status now. Do we still have the problem in JA NS 6.2.1?

Comment 25

16 years ago
On JA 6.2.1, the dialog UI has been changed different than in original report. 
There is no "token name" in new UI, it shows "Security Device: Software Security
Device" instead, however "Software Security Device" is in English not has been
localized, and the title of dialog still displayed as "... ...".  But I think
it's handled by another bug (Xianglan may know more about that status).

The problem with Cancel button has been resolved by the font changing of linux
JA 6.2 build. 
Summary: In Change PSM password dialog Token Name and the OK button label are not localized properly → In Change PSM password dialog Token Name and the Cancel button label are not localized properly

Comment 26

16 years ago
The UI has been changed since the original problem was reported, and the  l12y
problem of device string is covered in bug 88322. I don't see the window title
problem on Ja 6.2.1 build on my system (US W2K with default locale set to
Japanese). I think this bug can be resolved as a dup of bug 88322.
