Forgot to finish my sentence here. 
This is not a regression since Hello was enabled as an add-on in this beta build only.

This is the result of a bad merge to beta, caused by a few work arounds previously.

I think the fix would be small. I'm seeing what that looks like now.

Posted patch Fix the betaSplinter Review
This was caused by a bad set of merges, compounded with a profile that doesn't show the issue - I reproduced this on a fresh profile.

This patch is the difference between aurora & beta. I messed up here, as there were previously some workarounds in place for not having all the L10n code in 45, and I didn't make sure they were all reverted.

I'm going to change our uplift procedures so that either we export the add-on direct into each branch (and create a patch from that), or we do uplift in the normal way, but then do a diff verify with the actual add-on or previous branch to check there's no unexpected differences.

Fix the beta

Approval Request Comment
[Feature/regressing bug #]: Bad uplifts for Firefox Hello
[User impact if declined]: Users won't be able to access Hello for this beta cycle.
[Describe test coverage new/current, TreeHerder]: These parts have been in m-c & aurora. We obviously don't have actual integration/functional test coverage for this - we'll get a test written for that today.
[Risks and why]: Low, existing code that missed getting updated on beta.
[String/UUID change made/needed]: None

Please ignore this, this try push was for something else entirely and the push hooks did the wrong thing.

Since we got backed out, marking as wontfix.

I've filed bug 1250107 to cover the test that was missing that we should have had anyway.

I verified using Firefox 45 beta 8 across platforms (Mac OS X 10.10.5, Windows 7 64-bit and Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit) and can confirm that Hello was backed out to version 0.1, and it works as expected.
