Steps to reproduce:

I set my language preference to zh-TW, and enabled search suggestion. Then go type something like "台" in the search box.

Actual results:

The search suggestions shows "台湾" and "台湾新闻", which are in zh-CN.

Expected results:

In my desktop version of Firefox, it shows "台鐵", "台灣銀行", which are actually in zh-TW.

It only effects Google search suggestion. In here[1] we provide search template without specifying language, then Google fallback to Simplified-Chinese results.

But I have no idea why Desktop version wont be effect.

Setting priority to P1 for TW users.

[triage] If this affects one locale, seems non-critical but if it affects more, it could be important: leaving P1.

Mike, I think without further reports from the field, we can assume this only affects one locale, and keep it a P3 until we have more eng resources. Let me know if you disagree.
