My Homepage opens in Japanese. How do i change it to open in English?

Posted

I have just downloaded UK version from http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/firefox/ . My homepage shows Japanese text only - I am currently in Japan so I assume Firefox shows Japanese by default - but I want English. How to make it default to English? Homepage address is http://www.google.co.jp/firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== From installation
