auto updater changes language in windows control panel from de to en-US
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0 Build ID: 20180323154952 Steps to reproduce: Install firefox 59.0.1 (64-bit) german on Windows 10. Actual results: The auto-updater updates to 59.0.2 and seems to correctly install a localized version in german. In the windows control panel, firefox is now shown as being installed in the en-US version. Expected results: The control panel should show the de version to be installed even after an automatic update, as this confuses automatic software mangement engines.
I can reproduce this issue on my machine. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0 after the update the control panel shows en-US even though firefox is still running the DE locale.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Component: Untriaged → Application Update
Ever confirmed: true
Product: Firefox → Toolkit
The locale name shown in the control panel comes from helper.exe, which isn't currently being localized properly.
