Sidebar region does not change when non-default region is selected


(SeaMonkey :: Sidebar, defect, P2)

Windows ME


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: jonrubin, Assigned: rchen)



(Keywords: intl, relnote)

Tested on 6.1b build using WinMe-Ja.

1) Start browser (English or Japanese version).
2) Download and install a new region pack if none but the defaults are available.
3) Select the new region pack in View>Language/Region.  
4) Close and restart browser.  The region changes, as can be seen by the
Netscape page that opens when clicking on throbber, but the Sidebar is still set
to the default region.

Should the fix for Bugzilla 52930 fix this?

Jon, did you get a chance to try this?
This seems to be a dup of 87938. -> rchen

Oops, after taking a close look. It's a different problem.

This is by design: sidebar panels and bookmarks will not change when you switch
the region via "View" or "Prefs" dialog. The rationale is that they are
profile-bound setting and should not be altered once they are copied into the
user's profile directory during creation.

Jaime, we probably need to document (in release notes?) that sidebar panels and
bookmarks will not be changed when switching region, if this isn't already
Jaime, do you know if this is already documented?
Yes, this is documented in Tao's spec, but we should mark relnote, so that
rudman's tema picks this up.

Adding lbaliman, as she reviews the release notes for GCT PMs.
Jaime, do you mean that this should be reopened and reassigned until the release
notes are reviewed?
Removing lbaliman from cc-list.  Not tasked with reviewing release notes.
Adding keyword relnote and relnoteRTM for now, please clean up keywords if you
feel that this doesn't need to be in the release notes.
