Title:Step by step localization issue
Version:4.0.1 RC2
Description:I wrote a small italian guide to set Timberwolf in italian language but this is valid for any language out there.

You may ask why a bug report for a guide ?
Well read it :-)

First of all this is the guide:


I'll be able to make it working but you need to follow all steps in a correct order to avoid possible crash.

I translate this part from my link above:

The first thing to do is type: "about:config" in the address bar of Timberwolf, then once the long items list will be generated just search for the string:


Once you found it (using the excellent integrated quick search) click on that and change the string "en-GB" to --> "it-IT" (valid for any language of course)

Once you have done this you are already halfway there!

Now close Timberwolf (make sure to have closed all the program windows) then reopen it.

At this point, enter the following URL in the address bar:


Click on the file "it.xpi" (again any xpi according to the language needed)

This it.xpi is the real italian localization files that you have already set up in the "about:config" with the previous step

When the confirmation will pop-up just click to "Allow"

At this point, the browser will be closed and then will be re-opened automatically showing the entire program in Italian language !

Now the problem, why not go immediately to address taking the Italian file and then just edit the entry in the about:config?

Well that simple, you can't because Timberwolf will crashes! ... so you need to follow all the various steps in this specific order to avoid program face trouble ...

I try Firefox 4 under Windows and i didn't have any issue even doing the various installation step in a different order, so it seems a Timberwolf issue only
