As part of the move to shipping one Firefox with all locales, we need to eliminate firefox-l10n.js. Currently zh-CN sets browser.startup.homepage in firefox-l10n.js, to load a URL from chrome://browser/locale/browser.properties https://dxr.mozilla.org/l10n-central/rev/e73d39ca7cb5cc000ef519078c5a6c7d50d05d83/zh-CN/browser/firefox-l10n.js This is brittle, and requires ad-hoc workarounds in localization tools to avoid losing that string.

I think there's a separate issue for this bug which is why we still allow china to have their own homepage. We should be switching them to Activity Stream. MozillaOnline does their own repack. We control the one that comes from our website.
Reopening, since bug 721211 made it possible to move this to a standard preference. Technically, we can do this in 65 (because of cross-channel), but comment 2 needs an answer.
