Hi, please do this but you may have to start a new profile which happens during the install and other profile will not be of any use.

Download your language here :

Alternatively download a language pack : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-firefox-interface-other-languages-language-pack

Can you attach a screenshot?

Looks fine for me.

This can be an issue with the font that is used.

You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected.

You can check the font used for selected text in the Font tab in the right pane of the Inspector.

Note that this is not about the font-family CSS rule, but about the font that Firefox actually uses as shown in the Font tab.

You are right. It's

Yu Gothic Regular system Used as: "Yu Gothic" That's Japanese Characters, NOT Chinese Characters.

The Question now is why it use Japanese Characters. How does other browsers know it's Chinese. The website never mention Japanese. I don't see anywhere to default to Japanese or anything like that.

I download the Chinese version and it's working now. But I still think there is a better way to solve this. It should understand the font correctly.
