Guess the updated libc6 does not help considering you seem to have version 2.17 installed, so it seems simply updating libc6 will not solve the solution. Thanks for posting your info.

We have a new patched version of firefox-60.0.1 +2 that should allow for easier installing and switching language packs. This is all do to input of user fehlix. These are his comments:
This Firefox update provides a semi-automatic activation and enabling of the users locales for the Firefox user-interfaces for new and existing Firefox profiles. A user needs only to install the firefox-language pack from within MX Package Installer (MXPI) to get the UI automatically switched to the user locale. In rar situations it might be required for users with existing profile to disable and enable the language-addon within Firefox. Such race conditions might exists either due to well known MMCM (Mozilla Magic Cache Mystic) or due to the secretly known MMPC (Mozilla Moon Phase Conditions).
We're working on a similar fir for thunderbird as well.

Thanks Fehlix! :number1:
