Public bug reported:

Fully up-to-date Wily, although this has been going on for a long time.
Use Firefox to e.g. view Facebook.  Start writing some new status and
notice that *all* your English words are flagged as misspelled.  Right
click to bring up the Languages menu and notice that Arabic (Qatar) is
the default language, not English.   Locale is clearly en_US.UTF-8.  Use
the Language menu to choose English (United States) and the autospell
works correctly.
