>From the bug report, the language of interest is Norwegian Bokmal, which
is full translated and exists an XPI for Firefox 1.0 final. In addition,
from mozilla.org there is a package for the same language, meaning that
the Norwegian Bokmal version builds cleanly.

Clarifying this issue, your question is one of integration of Firefox
into the OS and specifically to get the LANG=xx_YY parameter to apply
for the browser as well to pick the corresponding language XPI.

Ideally, there should be RPMs for each XPI file and while installing
Fedora, you install automatically the XPIs for the languages you specify
in the beginning. Then, based on the session setting for the language,
the corresponding language XPI is activated while it is possible to
override through a customisation (like the extension you mention here).

I am not sure how is the state in FC3 :(
