#26465 closed defect (fixed)

Localized bundles are only showing en-US text

All of our localized bundles are broken with the switch to Firefox 60.1.0 ESR. Once a localized bundle is starting up only en-US text is shown. Looking at the language packs state in about:addons it shows that it got disabled as it is unsigned. I suspect this is due to So, it seems Mozilla is not providing signed language packs in their candidate builds right now. :(

Actually, Mozilla provides signed language packs. The problem is that we modify them during the bundling step:

# Prepare our language packs for using the proper search engines and embed
# our default bookmarks. See bugs 18915 and 21879 for more details.

I guess what we need at the end is signing the lang packs we ship with our own key, *sigh*.

I pushed a fixup commit to tor-browser-60.1.0esr-8.0-1 for now to unblock our builds (commit a0efd2fcd6e945919b46c9204846b14cdcc188bb). Let me know if I messed up. I'll file a follow-up ticket for work on a better solution.

FWIW depending on how we move forward #26553 and #26843 might be the relevant bugs.
