You can get the German version of Firefox 4 from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html

You can then install that over your current version. After installing it you may need to change a hidden preference.

  1. Type about:config into the location bar and press enter
  2. Accept the warning message that appears, you will be taken to a list of preferences
  3. Locate the preference general.useragent.locale, if it is not set to de, double-click on it and change it.
