language switching does not work
Firefox (65.0.1) on my Mac (Mojave 10.12.2) started displaying everything in Dutch. No matter what I do, I can't get it to switch back to English.
I'm currently in the US (San Francisco), but even if I visit salesforce.com here, even the website defaults to Dutch.
So both the interface (menus etc) of Firefox itself, as well as the content displayed default to Dutch.
See attachment: preferences page is in Dutch, as are the menus at the top, and the tab with SalesForce. Despite that the settings are to show US english.
I had Dutch and US English installed (cannot remove Dutch). I now also added UK English, and that worked.Read this answer in context 0

Are you saying the browser is not showing English, or the webpage? What about other webpages? Any problems?
If the webpage, try finding the language settings.
Please see the screenshot I attached to the original post. I set it to English, yet everything keeps being in Dutch. (tried restarting, changing to another language and back, etc. to no avail)
Note: it used to work so it seems a recent update broke it.
Maybe (re)install the English Firefox version as you currently may have a Dutch Firefox version. You can find the full version of the current Firefox release (65.0.2) in all languages and all operating systems here:
The about box is in English, so I guess I already have the English version. And as mentuioned above: it used to work, only recently stopped and switched to Dutch by itself
Firefox can only show the user interface in a different language when you have this specific locale installed or if you have a language pack for this language installed. Language packs are shown on "Options/Preferences -> Languages".
