Firefox 3 misses .desktop translations, should be copied from Firefox 2 debian/ directory

Bug #192333 reported by Timo Jyrinki on 2008-02-16
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
firefox (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

The menu item says "Firefox 3 Web Browser", even though it should be translated. The item is translated when using Firefox 2 packages, eg. in gutsy and in hardy before the update to FF3.

Probably also the English menu item should be renamed to just "Firefox Web Browser", as version numbers are not part of the program name.

The patch is fine. However, putting this back to "Confirmed" since the fix is not really committed in any source tree yet, as far as I know.

I'm unassigning you from the bug so that it is clear it needs
someone else to pick it up and push it in to the archive.

I've fixed that a while ago as part of bug #195013, which occurs to be half duplicate of this bug. This will land with beta 5.
Updating the branch to close this bug instead.
I'm not marking #195013 duplicate as the locales part is not closed.
