Can't remove English US

Hey, I have en-GB version of Firefox installed, but when I look at Language Settings, there's English (United States) under the default UK one. It seems like the US one can't be removed since the remove button is greyed out for it. I specifically installed the en-GB version of Firefox, just to be clear. Why is Mozilla forcing US English like this?

Thank you.

Hello Aetherlite,

As this is puzzling me, I just did some experimenting - and I see the same thing :

On the 'Webpage Language Settings' the 'Remove' button is not greyed out, but on the 'FireFox Language Settings' it is greyed out, but only for English (United States) [en-us].

My   Firefox version is the   'en-US'  version   -   could it be that you inadvertently downloaded this version :

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/?q=English+(US)

instead of  :

https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/all/?q=English+(British)

It would make sense if you can't remove the language that you downloaded your Firefox version in ……


In Windows 10 there is a bug where in the language settings the 'Remove' button is greyed out (a bug that's being worked on right now), but I don't see how this could affect the Firefox Language Settings (maybe somebody else does .... )
