Me too. The three buttons at the bottom have no text, and pressing them does 

Comment 2 John Mahowald 2005-07-22 17:37:46 UTC
Works for me with firefox-1.0.6-1.1.fc4. Update firefox and see if it presists.

Comment 3 David Anderson 2005-07-25 14:55:18 UTC
No, still not working with firefox-1.0.6-1.1.fc4. 

Comment 4 axgrau 2005-07-25 19:20:49 UTC
Same here. Still not working.

Comment 5 David Anderson 2005-07-25 19:31:12 UTC
I was using gtk-qt-engine at first, but that caused problems with openoffice. 
Now I'm using clearlooks GTK theme, so it doesn't seem to be caused by 
gtk-qt-engine, unless it's some side effect that still hangs around after 
disabling it. Are you using gtk-qt-engine, axgrau? 

Comment 6 axgrau 2005-07-26 06:55:45 UTC
No, I am not using gtk-qt-engine. Never installed. I normally use KDE, but I
have the same problem if I run Firefox in GNOME.

Comment 7 Peter Wainwright 2005-08-02 07:10:40 UTC
I've had the same problems, both with 1.0.4 and 1.0.6. However, it goes away if
I unset the "LANG" environment variable before running firefox. This seems like
the same bug Ubuntu users have reported, see:

Comment 8 Peter Wainwright 2005-08-02 07:25:10 UTC
Sorry, I forgot some useful information:
As you may guess from my email, I'm using the locale setting
When using this setting, I get the following in the JavaScript console when I
pop up the "Import" dialog:
Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code:
0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIStringBundle.GetStringFromName]"  nsresult:
"0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)"  location: "JS frame ::
chrome://global/content/bindings/wizard.xml :: _initWizardButton :: line 333" 
data: no]
Like the Ubuntu users, I get 3 buttons with icons but no labels, the middle
(back) button is greyed out, but none of them do anything when pressed.

Comment 9 David Anderson 2005-08-06 13:00:51 UTC
Same here as #7, #8 - unsetting LANG (from en_GB.UTF-8) both makes the 
dialogue work, and prevents the JavaScript console error. 

Comment 10 Peter Wainwright 2005-08-08 14:27:25 UTC
The problem seems to be some missing settings in the file 
locale/global/, which lives in the archive

Comparing this file with the en-US version shows:

The "button-*-gnome" settings are required.

This problem afflicts the plugin finder dialog too.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

I'm no longer experiencing this problem: firefox-
