I just filed Bug 732920. The problem was first detected in the
Esperanto localization but I checked and it happens with other
localizations as well (at least: ru, th) and I guess that will happen
with most locales using a non iso-8859-1 text for that folder.
How can we fix it? Just an idea: check at install time check that
downloadsFolder' in toolkit:downloads.properties can be read from. If
it is unreadable then we could either:
* have an additional property to used as an alternative, for example
* if there is a way to 'discover' the default download folder name for
the host's locale, use that.
Any ideas? As localizers maybe the second option is the better, so we
don't have to deal with another string. I filed the bug under "shell
integration" but I wanted you people to know about it because it is
pretty nasty, the user had been struggling with the problem for some
hours, downloading the program many times. And it took me a while to
figure out what it was.
