Hebrew language pack for Mozilla 1.3/1.3.1
LangPack version: 1.0.1

Release Notes

This language pack is intended for both Mozilla 1.3 and Mozilla 1.3.1. Version 1.3.1 was released mostly for Macintosh users, that couldn't install extenstions with version 1.3.

  • This pack includes a complete translation of the user interface of Mozilla 1.3.
  • This pack includes a minor bug fix for the search context menu in Navigator (right click on a highlighted word in Navigator window).
  • ChatZilla is still a separate unit in the software package, and consequently translating it caused technical problems in the past. In this version it is untranslated, and its preferences in the preferences panel are in English, although with right-to-left directionality.
  • This pack includes a default bookmarks file. These bookmarks will be used when creating a new profile, or a first install of Mozilla. These bookmarks include links to this site, and two useful bookmarklets: flip input field direction (by Jesse Ruderman, used to flip the direction of writing in the active input field in a form, and page flip (by Tomer Cohen), that flips the entire displayed page, in case the page author neglected to set it right-to-left. They can by added from this page, simply by dragging the link to your personal toolbar.
  • The <HTML> Source tab in Composer now has a left-to-right directionality, in accordance with the fact that HTML is written in Latin characters.

General Features

  • This version of Mozilla introduces unsolicited commercial email (junk mail) filtering system. For details, see here.
  • A new and unique feature of Mozilla is Find As You Type. To find a link in the displayed page, all you have to do is type ' and the requested word. Typing the word without the ' will find any word that matches the requested word.

Known Problems

  • Most of the settings that require entering server names or other English data, like email or proxy servers, are left-to-right. In some places the fields are still right-to-left. These places were reported to (bug 157607).
  • In the Mail & Newsgroups client, in the messages list, clicking a column header to re-sort the messages crashes Mozilla. This problem is fixed for the next versions of Mozilla (bug 206437).
  • In the Address Book, when selecting a contact from the top part of the screen in the contact's details in the lower pane, the line Display Name, if exists, is in English. Translating this to Hebrew crashes Mozilla, and therefore was left in English (bug 206009).
  • When creating a new profile, the new profile should display a completely translated interface, with no exceptions, aligned to the right. additionally, the bookmarks file should be populated with several default bookmarks. If any of these elements is missing, it is recommended to delete the new profile and create it again. To minimize the chance of errors, it is recommended to create a new profile from Tools|Switch Profile..., with the existing profile already translated.
  • The online help for the Mail client was rewritten in this version, and translating it might take a while. In order to prevent delay in the release of this pack, this pack was released with English help. When the help is translated, and updated language pack will be released.

It is likely that there are other problems. We will be glad to hear about them.

Most of the work was done using MozillaTranslator 5.02 by Henrik Lynggaard. final editing was done with Unipad, a Unicode editor that can be found at
