Pocket is not enabled by default on 38.0.5 beta 1 - ja build under Mac OS X 10.9.5.

Japan mac builds are named ja-JP-mac while the .enabledLocales pref contains only the "ja" string:
browser.pocket.enabledLocales;en-US de es-ES ja ru

Modifying the pref and restarting the browser adds the Pocket icon to the navigation bar.
Do the strings inside the panel work? Looking at "addtags" for example, from ?

Strings seems fine to me.
[Tracking Requested - why for this release]:

Thanks for testing.

Flagging for release to get ja-JP-mac added to the prefs.

We should add ja-JP-mac to the enabledLocales, fix the .properties file loading to handle this case (so it doesn't try to load ""), and make sure Pocket updates dictionary.js to handle this as well.

Isn't there a bug to get rid of this weird locale? It's a footgun. :(

Err. You should still be seeing en-US strings in a few places  (eg the bookmarks menu for View Pocket List and content menu for Save Page to Pocket).

Surprising that the Pocket panel is working... *looks*

Ah, seems Pocket's main.js :: getUILocale() is doing the expected form of detection, but pktApi.js still using window.navigator.language (which is presumably "ja" and note "ja-JP-mac", as I don't see any special handling for that.) While that happens to make Japanese work for this bug, it's broken in other cases because the differing language detection can cause make the Pocket panel use a language inconsistent from the rest of the browser chrome.

There's not, and until we have a product that's fully on top of l20n, or something equally powerful, we'll likely need to keep it around. The computer language in Japan is just different on Macs and everything else.

Thanks for the driveby!

Updated the patch because it was actually broken, I cut'n'paste the last bit too quickly. (Needed to s/locale/browserLocale/ to get the variable name right.)
