Firefox has always redirected me to the german versions of most websites, however these sites usually have a way to direct yourself back to the American version of the website. Unfortunately, that does not seem to work anymore. I use to be able to select, yahoo.com in the corner of de.yahoo.com, however now those navigation buttons only take me right back to the german versions.

Try checking the locale values in about:config

CT2611275.Locale

CT2611275.ct2611275.Locale

general.useragent.locale

If they are not "en" that could be your problem.

Such prefs shouldn't be there. If you have CTxxx prefs then they may have been added by a Conduit toolbar.


Does this work: http://everything.yahoo.com/us/?world ?

You can click the link "Weitere Yahoo! Seiten" and go to the "Weltweit" tab
