Firefox No Longer Honors LC
_TIME When Printing Date
44.47 KB, image/png
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 Build ID: 20170802111520 Steps to reproduce: 1. Unset environment variable LC_ALL. 2. Set environment variable LC_TIME to "en_DK.iso88591". 3. Visit a web page. 4. Enter Control-P to open the print dialog. 5. Select the Options tab. 6. Inspect the Header and Footer section to verify that Date/Time appears, e.g., as one of the footer elements. 7. Click on the print button. Actual results: Footer of printed output has a date in a format different from that specified by locale en_DK.iso88591. E.g., 1/10/18 . Expected results: Printed output has a date in the format specified by locale en_DK.iso88591. E.g. 2018-01-10 . This was working as expected in version 52.
The bug tracker recorded the version of the browser I was using when I reported the bug. To clarify, I observed the bug when running the following versions (of which the second-listed is a Beta): Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0 buildID;20180103231032 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:58.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/58.0 buildID;20180103230655
LC_TIME won't be used until bug 1409158 is fixed. Can file:///etc/ show expected date format on Firefox 58+?

Response to Makoto Kato's question, "Can file:///etc/ show expected date format on Firefox 58+?", attached are screenshot excerpts showing file:///etc/ from FF52, showing correct behavior, and FF58, showing incorrect behavior.
(In reply to Makoto Kato [:m_kato] from comment #2) > LC_TIME won't be used until bug 1409158 is fixed. Can file:///etc/ show > expected date format on Firefox 58+? No. When file:///etc/ is displayed in Firefox 58, the dates are not shown in the expected date format (i.e., that defined by the "en_DK.iso88591" locale).
The buggy behavior persists in Firefox 60.0.2. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0 buildID;20180605171542
