Need to translate my Firefox into English. How do I do that?
I'm presently deployed overseas and using a server in Kuwait. When I select the Firefox icon, it automatically defaults to Arabic. I can't find out how to translate Firefox into English. I downloaded the program in the United States and it worked fine until I got here. Somehow, it defaulted to Arabic via the internet site around here. I would like to know how I can open up my Firefox and use it in English. Right now, it's useless. Thanks.

If you have the Firefox user interface (menu bar) in the wrong language or want to change the current language then you can get Firefox in the language of your choice here:
Uninstall the current Firefox version, but make sure that you do not remove your personal data.
Install the new Firefox version of the wanted language.
Some sites automatically redirect you to a site in the local language, based on where your IP locates you.
There is usually a link on such websites choose a language or go to an international version that allows to chose the language.
