Found by Olivier. After installing the latest Snap, Firefox remains in en-US even though the OS locale is different.

I checked : this is a regression from the latest beta build (58.0b16). :Pike 59 changed the way the OS locale is detected (bug 1414390). We now have to define
> intl.locale.requested=""
in distribution.ini. We can also remove intl.locale.matchOS.

I tested both changes, I managed to see a fr-FR Firefox on a fr-FR Ubuntu.

Thanks for testing this.

Do we use the partner repo to build older versions? Like chemspills or ESR?

If so, I would suggest to add the new pref, and let the matchOS pref around until we don't ship a pre-59 version anywhere anymore.

Not at the moment. Snap have never officially been shipped. We've been building betas, so far. Thank you for the suggestion, though :)
