Enable addons manager/browser options

How to change the browser localization from English to another, if during installation of the firefox language pack addon you cannot then go to the addon manager in order to select necessary language? Is it possible to temporarily turn on the addons manager and browser options?

You need to follow this thread:
Browser Extension with Firefox Porteus 4.6

You'll also need to change "general.useragent.locale" preference to set your language so you could use 'browser_preferences=' or 'run_command=' parameters for this, or just hardcode these preferences in your customized ISO.

Moving thread to relevant section of the forum.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
