Comment (by mcs):

 So far I cannot reproduce this problem when testing on OSX without the
 patch for #21999. Here is what I did:
 1. Opened a clean copy of the es-ES variant of Tor Browser 7.0.1 (no
 preexisting TorBrowser-Data directory).
 2. Clicked `Conectar` during startup.
 3. Opened about:config and noted that the value for
 `intl.accept_languages` was `en-US, en` as expected.
 4. Used about:config to toggle `extensions.torbutton.spoof_english` to
 `false` and noted that the `intl.accept_languages` value had been changed
 to `es-ES, es, en-US, en` (the default value).
 5. Restarted the browser and checked the `intl.accept_languages` one more
 time. The value was still `es-ES, es, en-US, en`.
