I apologies for creating all the previous unrest.
In my initial comment I added a smiley at the end of the sentence to
suggest that this is not the place where such changes should be
discussed and it was rather a subtle remark to the fact that we still
don't have Firefox translations support in Launchpad.

For the future, please ignore any of my comments that are not related to
translations :)
