I want my firefox start page to be in English although I am in another country
I live in Turkey, I have my pc set up for English and apart from my IP address, all my settings are as though I am in the UK. When I start Firefox I want my start page to be in English. I know I can change my homepage to google English, but that isn't the point. I want my Firefox start page to be as I choose it to be, i.e. in English. I must stress here that I am talking about the Firefox start page, not the google homepage which I can have instead by changing my internet options. Google understands that people living abroad want their homepage to be from their home country, why doesn't Firefox? From browsing forums I can see that many have asked this question before, but from the answers no-one has fully understood it - it is the Firefox startpage that myself and others would like to have in English, not anything else.

Some sites automatically redirect you to a site in the local language, based on where your IP locates you.
If the Google (Firefox) or Yahoo! home page is in the wrong language then see:
