I've created a local build of Firefox 31.2esr, which is running well. Now I'd like to change the build settings to make my build run with german locale. This is what I've done yet:

- downloaded the german language pack from
- created a new folder l10n and copied the l10n files into this folder
- added this to my mozconfig:
ac_add_options --enable-ui-locale=de
ac_add_options --with-l10n-base=../l10n

After the rebuild, the Firefox is still in english language.

What did I do wrong?
