this is major and should be addressed by dropping the localized pref.

From bmo bug:

1. start http live headers
2. reset app.update.lastUpdateTime.blocklist-background-update-timer
3. open error console
4. force blocklist update by running:

Components.classes['@mozilla.org/extensions/blocklist;1'].getService(Components.interfaces.nsITimerCallback).notify(null)
5. check the GET url invoked

result:

https://addons.mozilla.org/blocklist/2/%7Bec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384%7D/3.0.4/Firefox/2008111319/Linux_x86_64-gcc3/chrome://glo
bal/locale/intl.properties/default/Linux%202.6.27-7-generic%20(GTK%202.14.4)/canonical/1.0/

expected result:
https://addons.mozilla.org/blocklist/2/%7Bec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384%7D/3.0.4/Firefox/2008111319/Linux_x86_64-gcc3/en-US/default/Linux%202.6.27-7-generic%20(GTK%202.14.4)/canonical/1.0/

difference: %LOCALE% is replaced by chrome://global/locale/intl.properties ...
but should be en-US

Note: this probably busts "OS" stats if they are based on blocklist runs.

Evaluation: PREF_GENERAL_USERAGENT_LOCALE seems to be a complex pref; fix would
first check for complex pref and then fall back to not complex pref.
