Please, be a little bit more specific. Could we get exact steps how me (how
doesn't have CJK locale and doesn't know what's important there) could reproduce
the problem? Could you point out some specific page which doesn't display
correctly (and show me how it should look like), please?

Thank you very much

Comment 4 Yolkfull Chow 2008-07-18 07:57:35 UTC
I am sorry for that I made a mistake about the usage of language pack extension
of firefox. According to the mozilla-support
(, the language
pack is used only for changing the language of the APP,such as menus etc, while
will not change the content of web. Sorry again!

But I found another problem during I was investigating this. According to the
page of mozilla-support,does change "general.useragent.locale" in about:config
will immediately change the language of the APP(menus say) after restart
firefox? If yes, we need open another bug against this.If no, could anybody
please tell me why? 
Because I did some test on this and found that only when I change the locale can
firefox change to the corresponding language of the APP.
Thanks in advance.
