What mail title looks like when clicking on a Re: mail
I think this is a dup.

note, it works fine for mail with ASCII subjects.

The only similar bug involving this is to try and download new fonts for
japanese encoding. The window that showed up had some weird chars. But this is
I get this on all types of emails that have a Re: subject, it has nothing to do
with language encoding

I have noticed this too in linux over the past month but it happens in browser
titles as well (not just mail).  I can not seem to figure out what triggers this
because not every page suffers from this.  Does anyone else see this on browser

This has to be a dupe... why I have not made a report.

As i have said, when you click on a mail with Re: in the subject, it makes this
bug happen, and it replicates itself to the other windows.. Really dont know
why, but i dont think this is a dupe.
bug 87991 is the closest one i found, but it's a different one

This did not exist in 0.9.2, but does exists in 2001070115 RPMs. 

I am not sure what triggers it, but once it is triggered, all windows are
affected, not just MailNews. In particular, right now this Bugzilla window has a
title "??@! - Garbage..." instead of "Bug 89651 - Garbage..."

I am currently running 2001070610 (installed from RPMs) on RedHat
Linux 7.1 under KDE with LANG=ru_RU.KOI8-R

I can reproduce this without starting MailNews at all. If I just start "mozilla
-browser", it displays the correct title "Mozilla..." for a second, than goes to
my home page ( and displays either empty title
or "?". 

When I tried it for several times in a row (exiting rigth after it finishes
loading the home page), the "?" and enty title were strictly alternating which
suggests that there is something in profile that interacts with it.

Reassigning. I am starting to believe that all titles that have chars different
than a to z cause this problem, for example, semicolons, dashes, etc
That would explain why Re: messages make this look ugly

Hmm i guess i am wrong, your college's webpage does not have anything special in
the title, i dont know then

Could this bug be caused by patches from bug 9449?

Could this bug be confined to some particular window managers? Just in case, I
see it under KDE 2.1.1 (from RedHat 7.1 kde*-2.2.1-8 RPMs)

I suspect this bug is a dup of 88384, and yes, it is caused by the change to
nsWindow.cpp under 9449

You're right
Marking dupe
I use kde 2.1.1 and xfree 4.1.0
