User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140113121555

Steps to reproduce:

I use Thunderbird-24.2.0 on Russian localized GNU/Linux OS.
I.e.:
$ locale
LANG=ru_RU.utf8
…

I've just started calendar (or tasks) from menu item (in Russian it's name is "События и задачи").


Actual results:

In the left top of window I see this month calendar.
In _alien_ format (week starts from Sunday).


Expected results:

In Russia week starts from Monday!
So, for Russian locale I expect lightning to display calendar in completely localized format (i.e. with week, starts from Monday).

You can configure the week start day in Edit > Preferences > Calendar > Views.

Thank you!
Of course, it is so…

But for years of using GNU/Linux desktop (preferring gtk applications) I've forgot, how it is to set/modify locale settings via GUI.
Lightning starts with correct (Russian) locale automatically, depending on system's environment.
And I expect it to get completely correct defaults, with no need for me to analyse settings and preforming minor (there is no general language settings in GUI) interface fixes.
Severity: normal → minor

I checked Lightning l10n and found preference calendar.week.start in lightning-l10n.js is set correct:

># the default day to start the week on
>#0=Sunday 1=Monday 2=Tuesday 3=Wednesday 4=Thursday 5=Friday 6=Saturday
>pref("calendar.week.start", 1);

I confirm this bug, but I think it is no localization problem.

lightning-l10n.js has no affect, see Bug 395504.

Why «WORKSFORME»?!?
To my mind the correct resolution will be FIXED. But it's unavailable for me.
I don't know how this fix relates with particular this bug report, but it's really FIXED.
