But maybe can I do it? tongue.gif cool.gif
I also think it would be just a little more correct...
Captain, FF has these terms localized, so please.gif , may you move them in the locale folder?

Ah, and this is my Italian contribution

ADDED
Just one othe thing: I replaced the maxVersion with 1.6a1, and I tested the extension on FF last Trunk version... and it works fine!!! cool.gif

Don't know that either, maybe the nicest thing in this case would be that the locale names are in their own language? Or maybe just like this. It is after all a tool especially for translators/developers. Not for 'normal' users. They could better use Locale Switcher 0.3 (which is almost the same, but only works for the language packs you have actually installed with Firefox).

Mmh, you are right, we are not normal laugh.gif

Of course localizing country names can wait, I would be pleased to do it, but I am quite busy at work just today... dry.gif

I only love the idea of "complete" localizations, but only and if you will have all 'your right time' in order to do it, ok?

Hi,

Good extension !
I confirm that it works fine with language packs.
Well it could interesting to have a popup which says that, if a language is not installed, it will not change the language, no ???

The extension Locale Switcher (wich doesn't need any locale) has be updated (to be compatible with TB and Nvu) by myself and is now at the french site :
http://extensions.ge.../LocaleSwitcher tongue.gif
The only difference is that Locale Switcher displays only the languages installed (by a pack or either...) but don't remove the name of the language if you uninstall a pack...
Well.. if somebody knows how to do... mail me rolleyes.gif

This is THE big difference between "Quick Locale Switcher" and "Locale Switcher".

Quick Locale Switcher is just meant for translators/developer to easy switch the general.useragent.locale preference so they can see if the extension has been translated ok. So most of the time, the user will not have installed the complete language pack for the selected locale, just some extension. I for instance only have an English Firefox installed, but I do want to be able to easyly switch to Dutch to see if my own translation looks good.

Locale Switcher is more for the multilingual users who actually want to use Ff/TB/NVU in a different language.

Not sure if this also answers your question, if not, please be more specific.

Ok i understand what you mean... I've seen after posting wink.gif
It's right that is very comfortable to switch quickly between locales to check the extension.
And it's right too that it is a very new extension, isn't it ?
Mea Culpa tongue.gif and long life to this extension !

Hi Captain smile.gif

Your extension is great ! ... but (there is always a "but" wink.gif) :
With french builds, default general.useragent.locale value is fr and not fr-FR, thus none item in QLS menu is checked. I made a little hack to resolve that (see attached file). In this file, I also made some changes :

- Replace prompt title by label (instead of statustext)
- Create a manifest.chrome file (just for test) :
=> no more contents.rdf biggrin.gif
=> install.rdf shorter biggrin.gif
But
=> works only with Firefox 1.0+ and later

Please, tell me what you (and the others) think about these changes.
Thanks in advance.

PS: Wich compression tools do you use ? My zip files are bigger than yours sad.gif

attached file removed (useless now)
