Bug Description

After opening gufw a welcome screen appears, containing:

Erste Schritte

Eine unkomplizierte Möglichkeit Ihrer Firewall zu

It should be "Ihre" instead of "Ihrer"

"Ihrer" is the maskulin version,
using "Ihre" is more neutral and used if you talk
to an unknown person.

Thanx

Bye,

“Ihrer” is completely wrong in this context. ”Ihrer” is not even only maskulin, as that depends on the grammar of the rest of the sentence. (E.g. „Das Haus Ihrer Mutter brannte ab, Frau Jung!” would be valid.)
It’s just wrong grammar in general.
(Of course we can be sexists and “see” gender everywhere, to commit real acts of hate against acts of hate merely asserted due to prejudice, and ruin a language with it … but that’s silly. :)
