I saw that current firefox.spec got changed according to new firefox 3 tarball
but langpack tarball is still same as of firefox-

If you look at install.pdf from ja.xpi, its clearly seen as its 
and not

So, we need to replace langpacks with new upstream translations available at

Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2008-01-25 04:55:42 EST
Langpacks are disabled for now.
Comment 7 Thomas Canniot 2008-03-30 04:20:35 EDT
Will they be enabled for Fedora 9 release ?

> Langpacks are disabled for now.

Why ?
Comment 9 Christopher Aillon 2008-03-31 10:30:14 EDT
Because they were incomplete.  In Mozilla land, incomplete langpacks means the
browser may not start or will have functionality missing.  Too many complaints
were filed that the browser was useless with them enabled at one point, so they
were removed.

Stealing this one from you, Martin...  I'll be adding these back soon.

Hey Chris, just need to get a reasonable estimate if the langpacks can be
re-enabled for F9 Gold (freeze is late tonight).  If not, we'll remove this from
the blocker, but if so I'd like to leave it on the blocker list for tracking.
Comment 12 Jesse Keating 2008-04-08 22:51:38 EDT
Looks like langpacks got added back in.  Closing rawhide.
