Installing multiple languages

Posted

Heya,

From time to time, I'm using my girlfriends laptop with Windows 7. I have my own profile there.

As she is Italian, she has installed the Italian Firefox. I do not speak any word of Italian, so that is abit of a problem to me. Is there any way for me to install any other language such as English or Norwegian, without affecting her installation of the Italian Firefox?

You can install extra locales if you want additional languages.
There is no en-US language pack, so if you want that an English version then install the en-US version of Firefox or use the en-GB language pack.
