#3389 incorrect language auto-selection by Accept-Language header on fp.o
Closed: Fixed None Opened 9 years ago by stefanp.

= bug description =
I have set my browser to send

Accept-Language: de-DE,de;q=0.8,en-US;q=0.6,en;q=0.4

This results in the fp.o site auto-selecting to display content in “de_CH”, where it should instead choose “de”.

= bug analysis =
Selection should probably be done according to section 3.4 of BCP 47.


What browser?

Could this be the same as ticket#2133

It’s actually the reverse of the phenomenon described in #2133.

I set Accept-Language to only "pt", I get "pt-BR" version; I set Accept-Language to only "de", I get "de-CH" version. It’s completely backwards.

Chrome 21 and Firefox 14.

Would you be willing to look at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_fix_bugs_on_the_Fedora_Project_website and see if any changes of languages.conf helps this?

Can you see if this is still happening?

If so, can you re-open this over on our websites trac?
