at least disabling lasts longer. 

That's because you didn't run firefox as root.  You have to be root in order to
uninstall the language packs.  Users can only disable them, not uninstall them.

My procedure is this to su to root, then run firefox.  Uninstall the languages
(and that dom-inspector thing).  Close firefox.  Run firefox again (as root.)
Close firefox.  Exit root user.  Done.

Language packs?  What language packs?  I don't see any extraneous language packs in my FF3 install.  Is it just the "rpm"'d version that does that because the Mozilla install doesnt' appear to have extraneous language packs.
