Locale setting issues #69
Thunderbird is a disaster as far as locale settings are concerned. I want to have it use en_DK (instead of default en_US with its silly date&time settings).
Changing settings in Preferences - Advanced - Config Editor does not help.
When I run thunderbird from command line or from menu (Xubuntu) I managed by exporting LC_TIME or LC_ALL:
$ export LC_TIME=en_DK.UTF-8
The menu runs the following script:
However, for some dark reason FireTray completely ignores the user locale settings when it starts thunderbird at login.
What would be wisdom? It would be best if Thunderbird gave more freedom in setting date/time preferences. Until then FireTray should at least follow the user environment preferences.

Hi, I'm not sure about Thunderbird. I'm quite confident there is just no official en_DK build yet. I can only encourage you to meet/build your localization team (see https://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Home_Page ?)
