Firefox Nightly 64bit

I need a german localized version.

The english one runs with a language pack which is not updated automatically, so the fox crahes at starup and I have to manually deleted the language file and load the upated version back after restart..

Localized builds not provided

Sorry, we do not have localized builds of Firefox Nightly available.

The nightly build is for testing purposes only.
For production use, you should always use an up-to-date copy of Firefox, Portable Edition.

If you're needing a localized version, all other portable editions are localized as well.

Mozilla Didn't Provide Previously, Time Considerations

Mozilla didn't used to provide nightlies except in English. I see they switched this in conjunction with ditching alpha and switching to a nightly to beta to stable channel track. I'm looking into building all 20 supported language packs of Nightlies, though it means an additional time commitment in building.

All the language packs

are already here:
https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central-l10n/...

My Problem is, that the Language packs are not updated together with FF-Nightly and so it crashes ever 2nd time on startup and I have to work the profile folder manually, thats a little bit clumsy.
As a workaround I've integrated the above link into the Hompage setup, so I'm able to update the language file at startup before the Nightly is updated.

I've made a fully localized german Nightly installation on a different machine and it runs smoothly, but I've found no way so far how to transfer it into the portable structure.

Long time ago you had the localized Nightlies in 32bit, I forgot when then was, FF31?. I'm running all current versions and variants since 2013 as portables in parallel, sometimes 8 of them in parallel open.

Nightlies Never Multilingual

We've never released the nightlies as multilingual. They were always English-only. We did multilingual versions of Stable, ESR, Beta, Developer, and Aurora/Alpha.

That's strange

I run the 32bit localized Nightly at least since FF31 as my backups show and I'm pretty sure that I've never used any other source than just here. It must have been some versions earlier already as I started with modifying the profile at a later point in time, also the start point for my backups then.
It always updated automatically with no problems as long as the server played nice.

Firefox Nightly Builds are now multingual

With today's re-release of Firefox Nightly 57, the browser is now available in the standard 20 language set we use for other Firefox channel builds. As it's now in multiple languages, it's also gotten its own homepage here: https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox-portable-nightly
