User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:35.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/35.0
Build ID: 20150108202552

Steps to reproduce:

Start Firefox for Android.
Change language using the Android settings app.

Actual results:

Not everything changes language in Firefox for Android.
For example the about: page keeps being in english eventhough i change the language to something else.

Restarting Firefox will make the about: page follow the new language setting.

Expected results:

about: page should also change language.

PS: I tested this in the android-sdk emulator so maybe some could test if this also happens on a device.

Hi, did you still see the problem?
What language did you choose? What device and android version have?

I don't have an Android device i tested it in android-sdk emulator.
But if someone with an Android device could test we can know if this only happens in the emulator or not.

When we have a new Beta build, all the languages are tested. But if someone finds an issue please reopen this bug. I will close as worksforme.
Thanks for report!
