I can reproduce it on RHEL-4/FC-5.
Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2006-11-29 07:24:39 EST
Is your $LANG set properly? For instance LANG=cs_CZ.UTF-8 for Czech.
Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-06-28 11:10:12 EDT
Martin, I have locale cs_CZ.UTF-8 and I can very well reproduce it. When I go
back to the Appearance/Language settings, English environment is always
selected, although I have selected the Czech before restarting mozilla.

Also, does it matter whether I have installed language pack into profile or into
chrome (I did former)?

Since this bugzilla report was filed, we have seriously upgraded Gecko-related
packages, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this
problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their
distribution available.

Please, confirm to us that this bug is reproducible on the latest upgrade of the
supported distribution (that's RHEL, or Fedora 7, 8, and Rawhide).

Setting the bug to NEEDINFO. If I won't get confirmation of reproducability in

[This is mass-changing of bugs which seem to be too old and irrelevant anymore;
we are sorry, if this bug should not be incldued.]

Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to
investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the
information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not
reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the
reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest
update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be
reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional
