Description

5 years ago
This was brought up in the forum: https://forums.mozilla.org/addons/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=11798&p=25479

This user has different Details in two locales:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/user/5203388/
https://addons.mozilla.org/el/firefox/user/5203388/

And he can only edit the second one. Apparently this feature was dropped at some point, but the old data is still around and working when the account page is displayed.

I suppose the best solution in this case is to just delete the localized version that isn't editable anymore.
These are localized fields, and we do have the ability to let users localize them. We just aren't exposing the L10n menu.

Yeah, we were looking this morning.  I think this is just a matter of unhiding the l10n menu.

I was wondering if this is something that would require a lot of time to solve, in which case we should at least remove the localized data for this user so he can regain control over it.
I'm under the impression it's just unhiding the l10n menu.  Rob will know more after looking.
