Hebrew language pack for Mozilla 1.7/1.7.*
Language pack version: 1.1
This pack is intended for Mozilla 1.7.*
- This pack includes a complete translation of the user interface of Mozilla 1.7.
- Most of the help files in this release are translated to Hebrew, including
the Mail & Newsgroups help.
- This pack includes a complete content pack, which includes defaults unique to Israel
for making a new profile. In particular, the default search engine is google.co.il,
instead of google.com. In addition, the pack includes the
Tapuz search engines.
These and other search engines can be installed seperately from our
search engines page or from
- The themes included in the installer, as well as the seperatly available
themes, are fixed, so that menu items are indented, like in the English
- This version includes a few phrasing and translation corrections.
- A problem with the P3P Viewer was fixed in this version.
- While the Hebrew edition of Mozilla 1.7.1 also included the English laguage
pack, Hebrew Mozilla 1.7.2 does not, since this caused problems. If you see
the words "(needs update)" ( "(דורש עדכון)" ) next to "English (US)" in the
preferences panel, you may select and remove it.
- With the spreading of the use of the personal computer starting at the early
80's, the use of the "-" (minus) sign was was spreading, as a substitute to the
"־" (MAKAF), such as in the expression "אף־על־פי־כן", or
in the combination "כ־5", and that is because there is no key that allows
easy access to these characters in the Hebrew keyboard, although the character
exists in the Hebrew character set of the computer. Similarly, the characters
׳ (GERESH) and ״ (GERSHAYIM, used in abbreviations) were replaced with
' (apostrophe) and " (quotation marks) respectively. In this language pack, the
original Hebrew characters where used instead of the incorrect substitutes. In
the mean time, we are working with the Israeli standards institute to change the
standard for the Hebrew keyboard, so that it will contain keys for easy access
to these characters.
- The lack of indentation in ordered and unordered lists in documents who's
direction is Right To Left was fixed.
- You can now prevent web sites from blocking your context (right-click)
- The pop-up blocking was improved.
- Mozilla now supports basic FTP upload.
- If you installed any extensions in the previous version, you may see an
error message at the bottom of the window. to remove it, close Mozilla, and
delete the file chrome.rdf from your profile folder, and
restart the browser. you will need to re-install your extensions and any
additional themes you installed.
- 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 mozilla.org
- 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.
- A more complete list of interface
and other problems.
It is likely that there are other problems. We will be glad to
hear about them.
Most of the work was done using MozillaTranslator
