I spent a great deal of time trying to track this down. Here is what found so far:

The behavior is correct in our latest esr60-based bundles meaning the buttons are localized as well.

The bug occurs on any ESR68 version but there are (at least) two crucial pieces to reproduce it:

1) The bug is only visible on first start
2) The bug only happens if localization is provided with the language packs. Localized builds as Mozilla ships them are not affected.

I guess the underlying problem is some race condition where the extension (the language pack) is not initialized early enough the first time to be used for the dialog buttons.

I'll file a Mozilla bug shortly.

(I've shaved enough yaks already to get to this point but I won't have time to work on this until 9.0 is out)
