£10,000,000 became $10,000,000, while ticket price adjusted for locale.

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0.1
Build ID: 20120713134347

Steps to reproduce:

1.  Navigate to: https://donate.mozilla.org/page/contribute/mozfest2012-registration
2.  Fill out the form with a US address, and select Paypal for the payment type.
3.  For "Additional Donation", enter a value (for instance, "100").
4.  Select "Purchase Now"


Actual results:

The ticket price (£40) converts to $60 on the paypal confirmation page, but the donation value (£100) is not converted, and lists as $100.


Expected results:

Recommend detecting the country the user enters on the form, and adjusting the currency listed on the form (this could also be done for the cost of the ticket).  Alternatively, add a little note or tooltip stating that the amount is based on your donation location.

Marking as resolved/fixed, but would appreciate a second opinion for verification -- the donation amount now appears to adjust, albeit a few dollars off from what Google claims as the current exchange rate.
