The German ones are fixed. This problem  is due tocustomization maintenance.

There are 3 arrays in the msg_prop_l10_xx.js

l10n.dl_green_box_select_box_os_values        = [ "" ];

l10n.dl_green_box_select_box_language_values    = [ "" ];

l10n.dl_green_box_select_box_version_values    = [ "" ];

Set them up as above and they will take values from the main download area
(in English). If this is not objectionable, most native lang maintainers
would not need to deal with this problem again. The problem sites have
customized entries for these which are not ijving with the current release.

yes...basically. Leaving the above arrays fully customized would require
local site maintainers to add to the arrays ahead of time.

??? From my location, it seems fine. I just used it.

At this point, I can "fix" some of these today the same way I did for "de".
I commented out what was there and added the empty arrays. No guarantees
all will be taken care of today.

You need a version change as well if you're using  your own for that -- or
else make empty as above.
