Choose display languages for multilingual web pages

Some web pages are offered in multiple languages. Firefox will choose a language based on your preferred languages list. If a page is not available in your top language, Firefox checks to see if it's available in the next language on your preferred list.

To change the language for Firefox's menus, notifications and interfaces, see Use Firefox in another language.
