Bug Description

Binary package hint: xulrunner-1.9

At least in Epiphany, going to about: (as in the URL about:) results in an error:

XML Parsing Error: undefined entity
Location: jar:file:///usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9b4/chrome/toolkit.jar!/content/global/about.xhtml
Line Number 60, Column 1:<body dir="&locale.dir;">

What version of Ubuntu are you using and what version of xulrunner-1.9 are you using. Does the same problem exisit when using firefox, if so what version did you test with. Please give versions of packages with the ubuntu verson number as well. example firefox3.0-b4-ubuntu1.

Please don't modify my bug's title or description, I know what I am talking about here.

I meant the URL about:, which is supposed to give an about page in the browser itself.

xulrunner-1.9 1.9~b4+nobinonly-0ubuntu1, epiphany-browser 2.22.0-0ubuntu5+ppa2 (my own PPA version, just a patched stock version with the patch mentioned in bug #118749. This occurred with the stock Hardy Epiphany.
