Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 450437
Language change does not change firefox's locale
Last modified: 2018-04-11 04:35:35 EDT
Description of problem:
When I first logged into Fedora 9, I've changed my language to English (British)
I assume, it should change locale settings in firefox into en-GB, but
unfortunately it did not, firefox's locale was set to en-US.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
have not tried
This works for me with rawhide at least.
looks like firefox so changing component to from s-c-l to firefox
Marek, could you reproduce this with the upgraded Fedora 9?
Firefox: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/2008071615 Fedora/3.0.1-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0.1
1. I've created a new user
2. Logged in with default en_US locale
3. Logged out and re-logged with en_GB locale
4. Firefox reports en_US locale
see screen shot attached.
Created attachment 314101 [details]
locale reposts en_GB, Firefox reports en_US
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
