Firefox 59 (64bit) stays en English although the language pack is installed.
Is there anyone with the same problem as mine???
Thanks for answering.

Same problem here. The cause is : some language packs don't work. This is a bug. I found a workaraound, very easy to do.

You'll have to create a new "string" and set as a value for example "de" for german or "fr" for french.
Good luck. On my MX16and MX17 machines Firefox is now in german.

In the past something like this happened, as in Thunderbird too.
Thanks again from the south of Italy.
