Bug Description

When runing enigmail in thunderbird with swedish locales LANG=sv_SE.utf8 the extenitons doesn't do anything, trying to get into the preferences, gives the following error, yes sorry the message is partly in swedish:

XML-tolkningsfel: odefinierad entitet
Adress: chrome://enigmail/content/pref-enigmail.xul
Radnummer 111, Kolumn 20: <description>&enigmail.keepCryptoSettingsForReply.tooltip;</description>

A quick search on the internet gives that this probably is the same error as seen here:


Using english locales for thunderbird and the package works as one expects.

I'll fix the bug in Debian with attached patch. Note that, at least in the current Debian version, this patch reintroduces the problem that the clean target does not reverse all changes to the source directory (which means that enigmail cannot be built twice in a row)

enigmail (2:1.3.5-0ubuntu2) precise; urgency=low

  * Fix LP: #886781 - build with --enable-chrome-format=omni, as this is
    what the chrome.manifest assumes (fixes chrome registration issues
    breaking non-English locales)
    - update debian/rules
