Yep :)

Digging into my apt cache, I found this:

eduard at eduard-laptop:~$ sudo dpkg -i 
/var/cache/apt/archives/language-pack-hu_1%3a10.10+20110208_all.deb
(Adatbázis olvasása ... Most 232374 fájl és könyvtár telepített.)

eduard at eduard-laptop:~$ dpkg -L language-pack-hu | grep firefox

/usr/lib/firefox-addons/extensions/langpack-hu at firefox-3.6.ubuntu.com/chrome.manifest

Somehow the Firefox localization files moved from the base package to 
the update package (20110208, I also have 20110201, that's not 
affected), but they are gone from the newer version of the update 
package (20110301), which contains an empty directory for firefox-4.0, 
instead of a firefox-3.6 directory with the translations.
