Firefox keeps changing my words into different language.

I've been using Firefox since few weeks ago and I really like this browser except one thing. My first language is Korean but I wanted to use Firefox in English so I changed the first language to English and Korean to the alternate language. Now, when I type something in English, some words will be automatically change into Korean even if it is a real English word and makes no sence in Korean.

For exemple,

When I type "digital" and press the spacebar, it changes to "아햣미" which means nothing but typed in the same way on my keyboard layout. Also, I cannot type "artificial" too. I thought this is because of the spell checking so I turend it off but it is still not fixed.

Chosen solution

It is possible you accidentally changed the keyboard layout by using a key sequence to rotate the keyboard layout or otherwise changed the layout.
It is usually best to disable the rotate layout feature and instead set a specific keyboard shortcut for each layout.
Windows remembers the keyboard layout setting per application.

Thanks! Windows was changing the language, not Firefox.
