Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; sv-SE; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; sv-SE; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

I have the following locale settings:

   $ locale
   LANG=sv_SE.UTF-8
   LC_CTYPE="sv_SE.UTF-8"
   LC_NUMERIC="sv_SE.UTF-8"
   LC_TIME="sv_SE.UTF-8"
   LC_COLLATE="sv_SE.UTF-8"
   LC_MONETARY="sv_SE.UTF-8"
   LC_MESSAGES=en_US.UTF-8
   LC_PAPER="sv_SE.UTF-8"
   LC_NAME="sv_SE.UTF-8"
   LC_ADDRESS="sv_SE.UTF-8"
   LC_TELEPHONE="sv_SE.UTF-8"
   LC_MEASUREMENT="sv_SE.UTF-8"
   LC_IDENTIFICATION="sv_SE.UTF-8"
   LC_ALL=

but the user interface in Firefox uses swedish rather than english. The GNOME
desktop (in Fedora Core 4) displays all text in english which is the correct
behavior.

Reproducible: Always

Can the reporter please confirm if they still experience this bug with a recent Firefox release.
This bug was reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.3 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
