How do I change the language of my Google search box back to english?
When I search using the Google search box at top right of page the results are all in German. I want to change back to English.
Additional System Details
This started when...
after a Firefox update

If the Google (Firefox) or Yahoo home page is in the wrong language then see:
- Google: http://www.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=873
- Yahoo: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/homepage/troubleshooting/troubleshoot-02.html
when I go to those pages - I cannot read the language in order to make the changes. Is there something re: the firefox download that made this happen? Can someone walk me through how to change?
