Bug Description

I recently upgraded for Karmic Koala and was provided a Firefox 3.5.3 version in French. Just fine. Except that the profile manager dialogs (Create/ modify/delete a profile) are still in English though other interface is duly in French.
When you download a Firefox version from Mozilla official page, everything is translated as it should be, which is no surprise.

Well, the French translations come directly from upstream in this case.
I have downloaded the 3.5.3 translation XPIs and uploaded them to
Rosetta. Therefor all upstream translations for French should be present
in Rosetta and in the language-packs.

Of course there is no question you personally did what should be done, but
the fact is, these bits remain untranslated, because they were just not
presented to l10n teams.
I am not familiar enough with the process to understand what you mean by
upstream (where is the repo which is used if any?)

I suggest the real only source of fully localized langpacks for firefox
should be here http://hg.mozilla.org/l10n-central/
