Hi Bill,

I think the bug existed before that.  That commit added new localized
messages for the newly exposed 'resistFingerprinting' setting in

I think the only functionality that's missing from other languages
regarding 'resistFingerprinting' (and the other "IceCat-specific privacy
settings) are the localized strings for those languages.

Presumably that Ruben was able to translate the new IceCat-specific
messages into a small number of languages, but not all of them.

I think it's already done.  It should be handled by this code in the
'apply_patches' shell function:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
    for dir in l10n/*; do
        if [[ $dir != l10n/compare-locales ]]; then
            if [[ ! -e ${DATADIR}/files-to-append/${dir}/${PREFS_OUT_FILE} ]]; 
                cat ${DATADIR}/files-to-append/${PREFS_IN_FILE} >> 
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This code aims to add the English-language messages for the
"IceCat-specific privacy settings" (including 'resistFingerprinting')
for all languages for which we don't yet have proper localized strings.

Am I mistaken?
