Failureto change langiage in Firefox menus
The firefox menus and messages suddenly started to appear in Arabic (see image1). I followed the instructions on the Help section and checked the language definition there (menu/ Options/ general/Language). The only language defined there is English! No arabic anywhere, not even as an alternative (see image2). Pressing OK and restarting Firefox didn;t help either.
How do I get rid of the Arabic and return to English menus?

Is it just the webpage or Firefox menus also? If just the webpage, that may be a website issue.
This happened in Google search (check the example I attached!) This happens ONLY in FireFox (not in Chrome) and only on a particular computer on which I use the same accounts. To be on the safe side, I checked my Google account settings and there too the only language is English, not Arabic.
So this is still unsolved.

Please, try to start Firefox with the -purgecaches command line switch - see the last comment in this bug report :
Try to add the full path to the Firefox installation folder :
• "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -purgecaches • (64-bit Firefox) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\" • (32-bit Firefox) "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\"
Any difference ?

This was indeed in the google search settings.
