Hello Rehman.

Although possibly not related to your problem, I will remind you that the version of Firefox you are using at the moment has been discontinued and is no longer supported. Furthermore, it has known bugs and security problems. I urge you to update to the latest version of Firefox, for maximum stability, performance, security and usability. You can get it for free, as always, at getfirefox.com.

Does this only happen in Firefox or on all browsers in your computer? I believe that, if you access google.com and it redirects you to another language, there is a link at the bottom that says something like go to Google.com. Use that.

To change your home page, see this article:

After spending few hours and testing how to change the language of my Firefox 3.6.8 from Chinese to en-US (English), I come across this only option so far (the about:config trick didn't work for me).

1. Unistall your previous Firefox browser instalation. 2. Go to: Control Panel -> Region and Language -> Change Location -> (set) United States. 3. Find a good proxy or VPN with USA IP. 4. Go to: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html and download your desired Firefox with your desired language (I chose: http://www.mozilla.com/products/download.html?product=firefox-3.6.8&os=win&lang=en-US). 5. Download it and install it.


Note: As far as I understand the Firefox will look about your OS language (mine is the English version), your OS keyboard languages (mine set for US and chinese), OS Control Panel Location (mine was set to USA), and your location at the moment when you execute the download for the Firefox browser app (mine was China but at that time I used a VPN which confirmed my location as USA).
