[Bug 899013] [NEW] Firefox not using localized Google Search


You have been subscribed to a public bug by Hendrik Knackstedt (hennekn):


on a fresh Precise Alpha1 installation search results through the Google
search bar (right beside the URL bar) are English during the first run
of Firefox, allthough the system's locale (and the one in Firefox too)
is German.

You can reproduce it the following way:

- Boot a fresh installation of Precise, whose locale has been set to German on installation (or perhaps also other languages different from English).
- Start Firefox.
- Enter "Tonne" in the Google search bar on the right top.
- Google displays the English Wikipedia page for "Tonne" as the first result.
- Close Firefox.
- Start Firefox again and do the same search again.
- Now Google displays correctly the German Wikipedia page for "Tonne" as the first result.

Kind regards,
