Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 144468
Firefox Pref. "General | Languages" could be set by 'Session Language'
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:57 EST
Description of problem:
Non-English language users must manually configure firefox in order to
coax websites in to displaying themselves in their preferred language.
Firefox could take an argument which appends the language selected by
the user for their session to the top of the preferred languages list
under Firefox's "Edit | Preferences | General | Languages" for the
duration of that firefox instantiation, could read from an environment
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Select a non-English language as your session language before logging
in, start Firefox, then view a website that takes 'preferred language'
settings. (Or any website, and sniff your HTTP request's
accept-language header with ethereal or similar package).
Users see English sites.
Users should see sites in the language they selected for their session.
Maybe already reported upstream:
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
