When Firefox updates, my language gets changed to English (United Kingdom), and I have to change it back to English (United States)
Open, Needs More InfoPublic


I want to report this here, before I go upstream with the issue because I think there might be something wrong with the packaging.

Event Timeline

Hello, is this a recent issue or have you always had this issue ?
Which DE do you use and more important, how are your locales defined ?

This is a recent issue Kyrios. I maybe first noticed it within the last 2 or 3 Firefox updates. I am using Solus GNOME. I haven't done anything special with my locales. I did mark my timezone as CST however when I installed the OS. What are the env variables for locale? I will watch for the 64.0.2 update when that happens and see if it changes.

The issue did not seem to appear this time. I am going to close the issue, and keep a watchful eye.

Yea I don't know. It's not a firefox update issue. Something is corrupting the language selection. Posting eopkg history

I don't see how this could be anything to do with the package itself. It's more likely that something in your Firefox profile is getting upgraded each time you run Firefox for the first time after an update. When that happens, it is likely messing things up. I admit there may be something we are setting in the environment that Firefox isn't expecting, but I can't tell what that might be.

@DataDrake I would like to keep this open for now. I am going to do some testing during updates, and opening firefox with all extensions disabled. If I can't find any correlation, I'll take this upstream.
