Settings: I want my Firefox to speak to me in ENGLISH, but it switches automatically to my country/regional setting, i.e. French! Where do I change this?

Posted

The main welcome page is in French but I want everything in English! I found a feature in "tools" where I can set my preferred languages, and I chose the 3 languages I use daily: English, German, French. But suddently, in the middle, everything switches back into French. It is quite simply annoying. NB: I live in Geneva, Switzerland, an internationsl city, where lots and lots of people ONLY speak English, but the country has 3 official langues, which are French, German and Italian.
