firefox monitor report
I got my first Firefox monitor report today, in Russian!
I live in Sweden.
Why do I get the report in Russian??
I managed to read it using Google Translate, but in Russian??
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:63.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/63.0
So was this by email or how did you get it? And if you didn't request this report or such that would be suspect already.

And yes, my IP-address shows that I connect in Sweden. Country: Sweden State/Region: Stockholm County
I have forwarded this to an Administrator - fingers crossed that you will hear from them .....
I filed a github issue for this to report it to the team:
We're going to investigate this issue in the Monitor code-base. When did you sign up for Firefox Monitor? Was it before or after October 1?
Since October 1, Monitor checks your browser's language settings when you sign-up, and stores that setting for your email notifications. Is there any chance your browser had "Russian" in its language settings?
November 16. I got a report already on that date in the correct language. Never used Russian in my language settings, only Swedish and English.
Oh, so you got 2 reports? 1 in Swedish (or English), and 1 in Russian?
You can say that, but the first was sent to me already the same day that I signed up, the second (in Russian) came 8 days later.
I don't know what to expect for reports from the Firefox monitor and how often I should expect to get one.
1. An email to verify your subscription 2. An email with your full breach report 3. Future emails anytime you appear in a future breach
I got the to first in Swedish, the third 8 days after the sign-up, was the one in Russian. However it did not report any breaches according to the Google translate I did. I could forward the Russian one to someone if there is an interest of that.
