Hi Grew, do you mean advertisements on websites you're visiting?
Firefox will usually indicate a preferred language to websites based on which "locale" you installed (like U.S. English, German, Chinese). But you also can check and modify what Firefox sends to see whether that helps.
You can check that here:
- Windows: "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Options
- Mac: "3-bar" menu button (or Firefox menu) > Preferences
- Linux: "3-bar" menu button (or Edit menu) > Preferences
- Any system: type or paste about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it
Scroll down to the "Language and Appearance" section. Under Language, click the "Choose" button. Here you can confirm that Firefox is sending English or U.S. English or whatever you like as your preferred language.
If sites are not following this preference, they may be using location information to customize the language. This could occur if you are connecting through a service provider in a different country. Do you use a private VPN, a peer-to-peer network (e.g., Hola), an onion routing service (e.g., Tor), or a proxy server? Any of those might change what sites perceive as your location by changing the IP address on your request.

What do these websites say about your location?
