I performed the upgrade (i.e. downloaded Firefox through the checker), installed Firefox 1.0.7 (the installation program was in English while it was supposed to be in Chinese), and my Firefox's interface became English. This problem has never occurred when I tried to update from an old version to a relatively newer version before. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: Expected Results: Firefox should be in Chinese.

This bug is a little confusing. zh-TW 1.0.7 is not being offered by the update system just yet. And your BuildID has '(ax)' in it. Is this a third-party build or do you have an ActiveX plugin installed ? Did you create this bug using the updated build ?
After some digging, I have confirmed that (ax) is added to the User-agent by the Activex Plugin at http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/plugin.htm (I looked at the Firefox 1.0.4 xpi). So I think we can ignore that. More importantly I can reproduce this bug by installing Firefox 1.0.6 zh-TW and checking for updates. The inital UA is Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; zh-TW; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050717 Firefox/1.0.6 The app loads this url when checking for updates (info from LiveHTTPHeaders) https://update.mozilla.org/update/firefox/en-US.rdf?127 and offers Firefox 1.0.7 (en-US) Software Update from: download.mozilla.org Spot checks of other locales (en-US, en-GB, nl-NL) gave results as expected. The problem seems to be the line app.update.url=https://update.mozilla.org/update/firefox/en-US.rdf in zh-TW.jar:/locale/chrome/locale/mozapps/update/update.properties This problem exists in 1.0.6 and 1.0.7 versions, but not 1.0.4 or earlier, and is due a change made in bug 299712 (attachment 188313 [details] [diff] [review]).

My mistake. I used beta URLs to verify update process and forgot to verify the url in real release. Solved in fx 1.5. P.S: Should we still fix this in aviary branch, pike?
