I can't change the interface language with the about:config edits in the Mozilla guide...ordinarily FF is set to match the locale, so we need feedback from users in other locales.

I found this here: http://ccm.net/faq/40304-firefox-how-to-hide-the-title-bar but it's not working for me in MX-16.1, in Customize it doesn't show a Title Bar button for me.

I also found this extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/hide-title-bar/, but it's also not working for me in MX-16.1, it might work with MX-17. There's a .deb you need to download and install with it (hide-title-bar-for-firefox.deb) which has a python3-minimal (>= 3.5) dependency which isn't available in jessie.

I use the xfce4-windowck-plugin package to get rid of the titlebar of all maximized applications and put the window buttons on the panel. I don't know if that's what you're looking for, though.

Neither worked for me in MX 17.

Just downloaded FF57 and language pack from test repo. Asked me to activate the language then everything was perfectly localized after restart.

Set up and use pbuilder, my man. You'll level up for most package builds.

Same here on 16.1; need python >=3.5.
Otherwise FF57 lookin' good.
MX-16.1 or antiX 17 64-bit LiveUSB on Win7 laptop.
