Following the report from the bug report Bug #2561: [iceweasel] sudden shutdown of Iceweasel 70.0.1, I must clarify the following.

After try one more time to install the iceweasel-l10n-es-ar package, I got the error reported on the bug report Bug #2561: [iceweasel] sudden shutdown of Iceweasel 70.0.1. Also, I've installed the iceweasel-l10n-es-es and iceweasel-l10n-es-mx package and both packages didn't change the language of Iceweasel interface. Meanwhile, in Icedove and GNU IceCat, the language packs are working flawlessly fine.

i noticed that i needed to set the language manually in the
preferences GUI - installing the language packs alone did not
change the language automatically - im not sure if it is supposed

I tried to change manually the language of Iceweasel using the iceweasel-l10n-es-es language pack, and I got the reported bug #2561 again. Any other add-on that I have installed didn't have any issue with the browser. Grisslyuser notified about this bug specificly on the Iceweasel 70.0 update and for now I noticed that this error message quoted triggers when I try to apply a language pack manually on the browser.

Updated by eliotime3000 2 months ago

Iceweasel updated to the version 72.0.1. Sadly, when I've installed the iceweasel-l10n-es-ar package, this error avoid to run the browser:

1579569700678    Marionette    FATAL    Error de análisis XML: entidad indefinida
Ubicación: chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml
Línea 1930, columna 9:        <toolbaritem id="appMenu-fxa-status" 

As always, uninstalling the language pack, the browser runs flawlessly. Zero issues with extensions (AdSkip, uBlock Origin, etc.).

  • Status changed from unconfirmed to confirmed

i used the v70 branding package; but maybe grizzlyusers's changes did not get into that
