 Sites can easily detect location/language settings. Changing browser
 language doesn't help, but switching IPv6 off in Mozilla settings helps
 somewhat. The site sometimes picks that last but one location instead of
 the outlet.

 Tested with:
 Tor 6.0.5 German standard settings

 comment: disabling IPv6 is easy, but the site still does not use language
 of exit node but the one before.
