Also affected: SeaMonkey DE 2.39a1 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:42.0 from official download area)  Gecko/20100101  Firefox/42.0  Build 20150728011950  (Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit

Also affected: French Language pack for that version, what seems a little crazy, because that LP's Help is in English.

NOT affected: Spanish Language pack from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/nightly/2015-07-28-01-19-50-comm-central-trunk/seamonkey-2.39a1.es-ES.langpack.xpi

The German help is very outdated / has significant differences in its structure to the English one.

The English one has a node sec_gen containing the children shown in the left sidebar:
http://mxr.mozilla.org/comm-aurora/source/suite/locales/en-US/chrome/common/help/suite-toc.rdf#952

The German file equivalent lacks that node:

Nobody maintains German help, and even English help is badly maintained. IMHO, we should kill the whole thing with fire and put a wiki-style thing on the web instead, like Firefox did with SUMO.

That said, I'm happy to take patches for the German one, but I'm not doing any updating of it myself because I lack the time.
