First, hello. Then, I already saw that, but what's the point of
installing a global extension (the localization) if each user has to
install the *distfile* xpi (read: not an xpi installed by the
firefox-i18n port in /usr/local/lib/xpi/, but the xpi fetched by the
port in /usr/ports/distfiles/) in his Firefox profile ?

To resume, the www/firefox-i18n port does not work any more, at least
for the "fr-FR" locale, at least on two different computers I own, and
at least one some other computers owned by others individuals who seem
to be using other locales. While it's broken, a workaround is to
manually install the french localization from the mozilla website. But
what can be done to repair the port or help debug this ?
