Last week I picked up a b2g phone (ZTE) and first thing I did was switch it to french.

I wanted to connect to my wifi at home and it never saw it. Today I switched back to english and ho miracle my wifi was now visible.

I have of course no log to show what the issue is/was.
Ludovic, is this 100% reproducible?
What happens if you use Portuguese as your language?

It was on first install. Didn't reset the phone to try in portugese.
And yes I tried to get wifi working at home fro 3 days. It started working when i switched back to english.
I think this should be tested by QA. First in French to see if this is reproducible and also in Portuguese to see if that language is also affected.

It seems weird that we have stuff broken because of the system language but if that's the case this is really scary because I doubt we have much testing in Portuguese...

If this is first run only, possible dupe of bug 819947, leaving qawanted for now.

This sounds like a UI bug. The Wifi code is hopefully (and likely) totally unaware of what locale we're in.

Still would like some QA input since wifi has been flaky so this might not be related to locales at all.

Testing with French during the first run, I am not able to reproduce this bug using the 2012128 Nightly Unagi build.

I also tested with Portuguese and I don't see the bug either using a freshly flashed new build.

But I have seen instances during testing (even today) where no wifi networks show during First Run.

Ludovic, by any chance, does your wifi network (or any of your neighbors' networks) include UTF-8 characters in the SSID? If so, this might have had something to do with bug 819164.

No reason to believe this isn't a dupe of bug 819947. Please undupe if that changes.

"And yes I tried to get wifi working at home fro 3 days." seems to be a good reason to think this has nothing to do with bug 819947 (according to bug 819947 comment 1, the other bug is about FTU only).

Ludovic, what’s your gecko build? By any chance, are you using the latest test-driver build (2012-12-06)?

I think this issue is specific to the 12/12/12 test-driver build. Can QA check this on a recent build please?

Just checked using the 20121231 build - it was able to detect my home network fine using French. This is a freshly flashed build.
