10.5: A fix for Cyrillic character display issue in Firefox 2 Web Browsers
A lot of people haved reported a problem with Firefox on Leopard, where Firefox was no longer displaying Cyrillic characters on buttons, in form input fields, tabs, and page titles. Instead, question marks appeared everywhere.

Here is a temporary fix ... quit Firefox, go to you Applications folder (or wherever you keep Firefox), Control-Click on the Firefox icon and choose Show Package Contents from the pop-up menu. Go into Contents » Resources, and rename en.lproj to ru.lproj. Start Firefox, and everything should work like it did before Leopard.

Note: There is, however, one small side effect: Your main Firefox menu will appear in Russian, instead of English. All other menus and preference panes will still appear in English.

This fix will probably have to be re-applied after each Firefox update, if they don't fix this problem upstream.

You can rename it to bg.lproj – this didn't change main menu language (English) on my system.
