Description Michal Stanke [:MikkCZ][:mstanke] (use needinfo) 2017-09-20 14:26:33 UTC
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Czech version of Fedora.
2. Open pre-installed Firefox.
3. Open about:config and find "general.useragent.locale".

Actual results:
The value "cs-CZ" is non-standard (Mozilla builds have "cs" only, respectively for all languages use two character codes unless there are more regions). Consequently is breaks the usage of WebExtensions i18n API [1], returning value that is not expected by extensions.

Expected results:
The "general.useragent.locale" should be the same as for builds made by Mozilla and correspond to the Mozilla locale ("cs" in case of Czech).

Mozilla builds and languages:

Comment 1 Michal Stanke [:MikkCZ][:mstanke] (use needinfo) 2017-09-21 09:55:05 UTC
Turned out to be a bug in localization upstream (in toolkit/chrome/global/intl.properties).
