I am guessing that all three are being included for each platform and that should not be the case. There should be only the file included for the platform included. If build is for Windows then include en-win.jar If build is for Mac then include en-mac.jar If build is for UNIX then include en-unix.jar They should not all be included as this wastes space, bandwidth, and consequently time. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download Mozilla. Actual Results: Look in the chrome folder. en-mac.jar and en-unix.jar will be present. Expected Results: These files should not be present. As a test, I will remove the files from my installation and make sure nothing bad happens.
I deleted my en-mac.jar and en-unix.jar and had no problems restarting or using Mozilla.
This is done on purpose, so localizers working on Windows don't need to download all the packages (and deal with extracting files out of the weird mac packaging format). They were removed once and were reinstated; you can find the bug on that if you care.

reopening and repurposing to undo that bug for localizers, the files to localize could be packed into a zip or tar or tgz or whatever instead of including them in an already hugh 10 MB download. Other bugs addressing this: * bug 88885 * bug 95198 * bug 154279 SEVERITY: Enhancement

Summary: files for other platform included in Windows installation → undo changes made in bug 91331 (don't include all platform localizations)
This would need to be a new build target....

You can fight with the localization team about this but I doubt that it's going to change.

No votes and no positive support in newsgroups so WONTFIX.
