Iím the French Firefox localization lead. We deeply apologize for this critical issue.
Release Engineers at Mozilla used the wrong changeset while generating the localized Firefox ESR 24.1.0 builds (all locales are affected, not only French), resulting the builds not containing the new strings since ESR 17.0 (and that's a lot of strings, hundreds)
Unfortunately, I donít have any solution for you, except using ESR 17. or waiting for ESR 24.2.
Note, we are tracking this bug on (it seems I cannot post URL link, so this is bug 932310 on Bugzilla, also linked on 24.1 ESR release notes). For now it seems unlikely they do a chemspill release to fix it :\
Quoting our release manager "I can currently count the number of ESR user complaints on one hand though. If more ESR deployments express concern, we will strongly consider a 24.1.1." So feel free to drop a comment on the bug to make them change their mind.

In their opinion, there are "not enough users affected", and "not enough ESR users complaining". I think they are wrong.
Yes. He is comparing "the portion of affected users who have complained to them" with "the portion of affected users who have not complained to them plus the total of unaffected users" and saying the former is fewer, so this bug needs no fix.
I can't imagine how one, after his middle school math education, can carry out such a comparison.
