** Description changed:

  It would seem something caused an incorrect language setting in Firefox,
  potentially due to 14.04 LTS -> 16.04 LTS upgrade.
+ --update: also on a fresh 16.04 LTS install?--
  I noticed I'm getting redirected to English pages on help.ubuntu.com,
  even though that hasn't happened before like eg within the last month. I
  upgraded this machine to xenial today.
  When looking at it more (after filing this bug originally against
  documentation) in Firefox settings -> Content -> Languages, I noticed
  the top-most item was "empty" (no language name) with [fi-fi] in
  brackets. Beneath it was suomi [fi] and english options. When I removed
  the "empty" language from the list, help.ubuntu.com started behaving
  correctly again.
  At this point I don't have better information but leaving the bug open
  to be documented.
  Original report:
  All links at eg https://help.ubuntu.com/16.04/ubuntu-help/index.html.fi point unfortunately to English versions of the pages, like https://help.ubuntu.com/16.04/ubuntu-help/unity-introduction.html
  The correct links would have the ".fi" added to the URL, like
