In the FreeBSD install where this was an issue in firefox, I had them in
.bash_profile, I think.  Or maybe .bashrc.  :) I don't remember.  But the
only thing I remember being an issues was Firefox, and the only variable I
had to add at the time was changing LC_CTYPE from English to Japanese.

Try .bash_profile, (and then log out and log in.)
