Swedish UI disappeared from Firefox after updating to 59.0


I run 64 bit Peppermint Linux 8 with Swedish UI.
Yesterday I updated Firefox to 59.0 and then menues etc. were in English, even though the Swedish language pack also was updated to 59.0.
Another issue with Firefox is that it crash when visiting www.tradera.com (kind of eBay like Swedish site).
Please give me the Swedish UI back !

Have you restarted your machine since the updates came through? They may have been unable to take hold because you were still running something Firefox-related, perhaps in the background.

If yes, close Firefox and try re-installing the Swedish language pack.

Also, at which point in viewing Tradera does your browser crash? I'm running Firefox 59.0.1 on Linux Mint 18.3 and that site seems to be working for me.

Yesterday Firefox had an update to 59.0.1 and I expected that they had fixed my problem, but no they had not.
I have now reported this bug to Bugzilla @ Mozilla as bug 1446535.
Reboot makes no difference.
Re-installing Firefox makes no difference.
Re-installing the Swedish language-pack makes no difference.
I have found a workaround, though.
By downloading it from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ and extract it to a folder, then copy everything in that firefox folder and pasting it (overwrite) in the usr/lib/firefox folder makes the Swedish UI come back.
www.tradera.com crash the tab, not the complete Firefox, and it crash within a second or two. So, when visiting www.tradera.com I now use Google Chrome.

Crash show here: https://vimeo.com/260547290
