Epiphany don't work if you have mixed use locales.

How to reproduce an error:

  • Install Elementary OS 6.1 from latest iso.
  • In System Settings change Formats to a different language and press button "Set Language"
  • Logout

After that Epiphany can't open any site.

If you instead use button "Set System Language", Epiphany works as intended.

This is an old flatpak bug, fixed in flatpak 1.12.0, which was released in October 2021. You might report a bug to ask the elementary OS developers to update flatpak or backport the fix.
