We do include french translation in RHEL4's firefox package:
/usr/lib/firefox-1.0/chrome/fr-FR.jar

What locale are you running as (you can find it out by 'locale command')


Comment 3 Patrice Guay 2005-05-17 01:38:37 UTC
I'm using the french canadian locale (LANG=fr_CA.UTF-8).

Comment 4 Patrice Guay 2005-05-24 21:29:06 UTC
I've found an easy workaround:
# cd /usr/lib/firefox-<version>
# ln -s chrome/fr-FR.jar chrome/fr-CA.jar

Hence, it may be a good idea to add such links in order
to support different locales sharing the same language.

Comment 5 Leon Ho 2005-05-26 01:00:14 UTC
However this create some problems as not all translated phrases are equal on
different regions.

Just want to add a note that Bug 137134 has been progressing very well in
regards to adding LANG pack to firefox. 

Comment 7 Warren Togami 2005-05-28 08:17:04 UTC
This will not be fixed by FC4.
