Public bug reported:

1) Description:	Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Release:	16.04

2) firefox:
  Zainstalowana: 46.0+build5-0ubuntu0.16.04.2
  Kandydująca:   46.0+build5-0ubuntu0.16.04.2

3) Firefox should send Accept-Language header containing "pl,en-
US;q=0.7,en;q=0.3".

4) Firefox sends Accept-Language header in the form of "en-US,en;q=0.5"

Firefox does this even though intl.accept_languages is by default set to
"pl, en-US, en" and settings look alright in GUI ("Content" page).

Looks like this value is ignored until Firefox "thinks" it was set by
user manually (value's status changes from "default" to "user's" in
about:config).

The workaround is to double click intl.accept_languages value in
about:config and click "OK" button without changing anything.
