Firefox does not accept langpacks

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0
Description of problem:
The Firefox build included in Firefox does not accept langpacks. One is able to install them, but they don't work. This doesn't happen in the official firefox build from mozilla.org.
This makes the FC3 Firefox completely unusable for some users.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install the Locale Switcher (http://benjamin.smedbergs.us/switch-locales/)
2.Install the PT lankpack (http://mozilla.shopizzy.com/langptpt.xpi?fid=32)
Actual Results: The interface remains in English.
Expected Results: The interface should be in Portuguese, which is what happens when I perform the above steps with mozilla.org's Firefox (on Linux, Windows or Mac).
Possible dup of bug #138339
This is due to the "intl.locale.matchOS" pref, which is set to "true" by default
for RedHat builds, which uses the value of LANG from the evironment to select
the proper browser UI.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Simply use LANG=pt_BR.utf-8 if you want to use Portuguese, same as with other
programs in the distro.
