Some of my information on Firefox is in English and some in another language. Just happened. What do I do to get all English?

Posted

When I do a search on Firefox, the line under where I enter what I am searching for is in a foreign language. Instead of saying All, Shopping, Images, Video, etc., those words are in a foreign language. Example: Alle Afbeeldigen Shopping, Maps, Video, Nieuws. How can I change this?
