change language firefox on MAC

Posted

Hi,

I live in the Netherlands but I don't speak Dutch. I'm from Sweden and have both Swedish and English as preferred languages. Since I moved here, Firefox changed the language to Dutch. I understand that IP-related issues cannot be solved with firefox (searching for a brand on facebook in one of the languages I know but ending up on the Dutch page) but I really would like to be able to understand my browser. The solution is probably simple - but since everything is in Dutch I can't navigate my way to where I need to make the change. For the last two months I've been using Safari as a result, which I'm not particularly happy about either.

Please help me, and not by guiding me in English on where to go as it will be different in Dutch.

Thanks, Frida
