about:preferences#general - "Choose your preferred language for displaying pages"

There's a checkbox "Request English versions of web pages for enhanced privacy".

If you select it the language field become en-US,en while other Tor user have en,en-US. This makes this person unique than other users.

So please remove this option or force every Tor Browser user share same value.

What exactly is the bug here? That using the checkbox is giving you a different english intl.accept_languages value than using the "Choose your preferred language for displaying pages"?
But it should be generally allowed to set say "es-ES" in case this is needed as long as the headers looks the same to someone not spoofing the locale? Or should there be no option at all to try to change the locale of the website if needed?

(I'll fix up the title once it's clear what the bug report is)
