[Bug 550222] Re: Firefox interface language set to LANG, ignores LANGUAGE

Using LANG instead of LANGUAGE is not the default behavior of Firefox.
For some reason, Debian seems to have created the problem through a
firefox.js file with Debian specific preferences:

$ grep -B1 'matchOS' /etc/firefox/pref/firefox.js
// Use LANG environment variable to choose locale
pref("intl.locale.matchOS", true);

I figured out how to change the behavior to our liking, and the solution
is described in the patch (or hack) I attached to this bug. The same
solution works just as well for Thunderbird, btw.
