Created attachment 533646 [details] rtl branding1 Mozilla /5.0 (Android;Linux armv7l;rv:5.0) Gecko/20110517 Firefox/5.0 Fennec/5.0 Device: LG Optimus 2X (Android 2.2) Steps to reproduce: 1. install arabic plugin: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/nightly/latest-mozilla-central-linux-l10n/ 2. go to about:firstrun or go to preferences Expected results: The brand should be "Firefox Beta" Actual results: The brand is still Nightly see screenshots
Firefox 5 (desktop and mobile) beta don't have nightlies. The build you are using is from mozilla-central (i.e. Firefox 6). Unfortunately, fennec 5 betas are not build on daily basis, but roughly once per week. You can the beta builds here: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/candidates/ where the latest fennec 5 beta is at: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/candidates/5.0b2-candidates/build1/linux-i686/ Note: it is strange that beta tab appear in the preferences panel in your screenshot. are you sure this is a central nightly (as in the link you specified) and not an aurora build?
The build that I have installed is from here: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/candidates/5.0b2-candidates/build1/android-r7/multi/ and the plugin for Arabic language is from here: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/nightly/latest-mozilla-central-linux-l10n/ The application is Firefox Beta branded but when I switch to ar language it changes into Nightly as you can see in screenshots. Note: - from the arabic plugin I've installed only the language pack - the beta tab is present because I was using a beta build
That explained it. The branding is included in the langpack, and since the langpack is from mozilla-central, it lacks the beta branding strings. Just to make sure this is the cause, can you try applying any LTR locale langpack on the beta build you're using. Aside from that, I am not sure where to get fennec 5 localized builds or langpacks. I'll ask in #mobile.
Please re-test using the following Arabic plugin: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/5.0b2-candidates/build1/linux-i686/xpi/ar.xpi
Isn't thet one for Desktop? For mobile I guess this should work: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/candidates/5.0b2-candidates/build1/maemo5-gtk/ar/
Anas's link doesn't work (the language pack fails to install) but I was able to install it from Ioana's link. The branding now is ok, "Firefox Beta".

I give you the linux-686 langpack instead of the android's one (which was kindly provided by Ioana). > The branding now is ok, "Firefox Beta". Good. Re-marking as resolved.
