Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.5

All of the words show as spelt incorrectly since the default language seems to be some form of español.

Hmmm ...
Are you saying that default language is es_GT even though you havea
en_US as locale? I would think there would be much more noise if that

In the Karmic final Ubuntu CD, es-GT isn't installed, so it chooses the first one in the list which happens to be en-GB.

When filling in FORMS on web-pages, I must constantly RIGHT-CLICK, highlight LANGUAGES, and choose (in my case
ENGLISH (United States)).

BUG: It appears that this choice is NOT preserved as a static preference from one login to the next.
