hello, try to clear the cache & cookies from google.com and reload the page. google might also try to detect your location & language based on your ip address - there's not much a browser can do about that...

Did you check the settings in Google to get the international Google.com site (possible link at bottom right) and have the interface in English?

You can check the order of the installed Languages.

  • Firefox > Preferences > Content > Languages

Question owner

This is what I tried:

1) Tools (menu) ClearRecentHIstory etc - deleted everything there

2) Preferences Advanced - Clear Cache !

3) Preferences Content - Languages etc

4) Closed FF and reopened.

And nothing helps. Google Search is still Romanian It is Google Search that creates the problem Use FF 18.0.2 for MAC But now will use Safari. It seems less complex
