So. My first language isn't english, and I would like to add search to firefox that takes me to the english version and another that would take me to finnish version of wiki. Is there any way of doing this? I lose the "add search" button for fin if I add eng version and vice versa. Pyro F.

Accented characters appear with extra accent mark: ´á ´é ´í ´ó ´ú (intermittently).

After Firefox has been open more than a few minutes, usually with at least two or three windows and/or tabs open, when I try to type accented characters (á, é, í, ó, ú Á É Í Ó Ú) they come out with an extra accent mark preceding the accented letter (´á ´é ´í ´ó ´ú). I usually have a WebWhatsApp window open.

This doesn't happen in other browsers or other programs that take text.

At the same time, the Ctrl+F (for find) function stops working. If I close all of the windows, and attempt to reopen Firefox, I get an error that says that Firefox is still running, and do I want to close it? I say yes, and it closes. And for a short or longer while, the problems go away. Then they come back.


Using Spanish (Mexico) language and Latin American keyboard, with Español (Mexico) language pack installed.

Lenovo Flex 3 -1570 laptop, Windows 10 Home v. 1803 . Updated Firefox Quantum 66.0.5. Had Firefox "optimized" a few times by my Lenovo tech support subscription service. No effect.

I've set everything to German (!), But Firefox still assumes that I prefer Spanish although I do not speak Spanish, probably because I installed Firefox for the first time, when I went on holiday with my notebook in Spain and used Spanish Wi-Fi. Since then, many platforms such as LinkedIn or Google always open up in Spanish for the first time. What can I do to ONLY get German or English at the first call of new pages? With the Chrome browser, the pages ALWAYS come in German or English, never in Spanish.

I am trilingual and thus installed support for English, Spanish and German and while on my phone, the keyboard is getting smart enough to guess sort of, which language I am writing the current word in, on the Desktop Browser I am not happy at all with how language needs manual switching. Worse, it shows completely pointless locales that I never consciously installed or asked for. 5 English locales, 6 German locales and 22 Spanish locales doesn't make it easier to switch languages. I end up picking random locales with the occasional surprises but would prefer to hide all but one locale per language, with a hotkey to cycle through or pick. How can I achieve a smoother language switching?

I've installed the British English Dictionary and Language pack. They are confirmed as active in Add-on Manager. Using the latest version of Firefox at present. Version 61.0. Checking for updates from About finds no newer version.

Yet, still Firefox insists on trying to make everything American English. How can I stop it doing that?

Is the only way to completely remove it and start again from the beginning?

Since FF updated to 60.0.1 (64bit) on linux Mint, the date formatting on some sites has changed from English US (mm/dd/yy) to English Europe (dd/mm/yy). The FF language preference is set to (1) English [en] and (2) English/united States [en-us] (I tried it with the order reversed as well). Going to the same sites on the same machine with Chrome displays US date format. Any ideas?

Corperate softwarw download. so saying download another version is not going to help and it would not fix the issue.

so i download the version available Firefox ESR V2.4.8 - 2.4.5 (CCK2)

now for some reason it thinks i want FF in french I do not. and i do not have any idea why it chose french.

my location in Germany. my operating language is English. others in the office are German and and have German operating systems and they get FF in German. what gives?

yes i have been to Contenu - Langues - and selected English but as you know that only tells what language to show the pages in and has no bearing on the UI.

so back to the French would it have picked up on my corp. user name? or may family name? which just so happens to be French.

oh expect loads of spelling errors in this as the spell check is working overtime in FRENCH.

BUT FF is going that deep into the user info that is not good. So how do i change the language in the UI.
