As you can see in the attached screenshot, the contacts app header is no longer localized.

I suspect bug 1098673 might have caused this.

That's weird.  I can see the string here:

Could this be related to the gaia-header web component at all?
QA wanted for a branch check
Keywords: qawanted, regression
FWIW, I can't reproduce this on master.
I could reproduce on today's nightly on trunk. For built-in apps this seems to only occur on Contacts. I filed bug 1144433 one day before comment 0, so I know at least for Accented English that this is a recent regression.

Hey Stas, did you manage to reproduce this issue?

I could reproduce it with the latest master on my local clone and from a clean gaia downloading it as a zip package from I have no l10n related environment variables like the ones described at

It looks like this has always been broken and bug 1098673 only exposed it :(  The proper fix is bug 1066347 which Zibi has already started working on today.
