how do I remove a language from the options?

I bought my computer in Italy, as I needed an Italian keyboard layout for practicality, however, I do not wish in anyway or form or whatsoever, to use the Italian language in my computer.

When I try to set English (UK) in the browser option, it does it flawlessly, but it does not let me then remove the Italian language from the list.

I need to remove it because already once it has happened that I log back in the browser and the language set is still Italian (although I specifically selected English and restarted the browser for the changes to be applied) and this is so tremendously annoying because I'm not the only one using the computer, and while I may be able to understand Italian the other user isn't and we just can't have this switching every single time we use the browser.

(You can see in the first picture how the option is active while on English, and in the second, while on Italian, the option is not available any more).

I love Firefox, but hell, why it doesn't even give me the option to remove something I have absolutely no use AT ALL?

Thanks in advance for all the solutions that will be provided!

You can't remove the main language for the locale that you, so instead you can install the Firefox version for this language instead of using a language pack. You can uninstall no longer needed language packs via "Options/Preferences -> Languages"

You can find the full version of the current Firefox release (78.0.2) in all languages and all operating systems here:
