Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1466936
Website button link in Software makes Firefox not respect preferred languages preferences
Last modified: 2017-07-03 06:55:05 EDT
Description of problem:
When clicking the website button in Software, the mozilla.org website opens in English version, despite the local version exists.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1. Have Firefox on Czech Fedora installation as default browser.
2. In Firefox content preferences ensure Czech (cs) is the preferred language.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Software.
2. Find Firefox there.
3. Click the website button.
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/ is opened instead the expected localized version https://www.mozilla.org/cs/
The link from Software makes Firefox ignore the preferred language preferences and as a consequence it gets redirected to the en-US version of the website. To make things worse, this pollutes the cache and the redirect to the appropriate version won't work not even from regular links on the web, unless you clear the browser cache.

Do not hardcoded locale when clicking links in gnome-software
The next build should contain this fix.
