    Firefox 18.0 update lost local language

    Ubuntu 12.10 64bits. Yesterday periodical update, goes from Firefox 17.0 to 18.0.

    I am using firefox 17 in Catalan language and I get "you must reinicialize the browser" message.

    After Firefox reinitilization I lost locale language setting.
    In firefox About:config I have in "general.useragent.locale" en-US. I changed to "ca" (my locale)

    In "tools > add-ons > languages" there is NO catalan language pack!

    but Ubuntu software center, and "system parameters > langage support" are installed catalan preference.

    How can I get my locale with Firefox 18?

    I am up to date. Look the apt-get reply of your command:
    francesc@Pccesc:~$ sudo apt-get install firefox-locale-ca
    S'està llegint la llista de paquets… Fet 0%
    S'està construint l'arbre de dependències
    S'està llegint la informació de l'estat… Fet%
    firefox-locale-ca ja es troba en la versió més recent.
    0 actualitzats, 0 nous a instaŀlar, 0 a suprimir i 0 no actualitzats.
    francesc@Pccesc:~$
    Translated to english is:
    firefox-locale-ca is up to date.
    0 updatet, 0 new, 0 deleted and 0 not updated.


    I do the same with GUI in Ubuntu software center, search for "firefox" and click on the link "show 218 technical items", one of this items is "Catalan language package" and is green checked!

    Why in "tools > add-ons > languages" there is NO Catalan language pack?

    and this is perfect working with firefox 17.0, few minutes before update to 18.0! I am using firefox and updating Ubuntu, and I get the "you must reinitialize firefox" message. After reinitializing all menus are in English!

    NOTE: If I write a text in Catalan, this text is correct Catalan checked and i get good substitution Catalan words. (pop-up window wit spell checker in languages button, gives my Catalan availability and works well)

    I'm experiencing the same issue. Seems that firefox-locale-ca has some problem.

    Thanks.

    Tested this in VirtualBox and this seems to affect both 12.04 and 12.10. Bug reported: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1098296.

    EDIT: New bug, this time reported using Apport: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1098312. Please, mark the two bugs as "Yes, this affects me" to make a fix come so fast as possible.

    fvilaubi,

    Would using an alternative browser and the information below help you, pending solution of the Firefox bug?

    See Examples 1 and 2.

    Re #5: this bug is exactly I am experiencing. I marked "I am affected" in two bugs.
    Thanks Bufeu.

    Re #6: Is not a installation problem. I was using in locale catalan firefox 17.0 yesterday, until I receive the firefox 18.0 update. After "you must reinitialize Firefox" message, I only get English menu.

    This bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1098312 explains issue origins. (malformed install.rdf. There are 2 lines of whitespace at the start of the file, which results in the addon manager not loading it)

    Thanks forkandles for your suggestion.

    Re: Firefox 18.0 update lost local language

    Hello,

    I've got exactly the same problem and I've already registered as well that I'm affected by both bugs, but does anyone now any workaround that might fix it so that we don't have to wait for the official update to do it for us?

    By the way, how long does it normally take to fix Mozilla bugs like this?

    Thanks!

    Margaret
