On Firefox 29, click on menu button, placed on extremely right of the navigation bar & click on Options & then click on Content tab & under Languages section of content tab & select English(United States) [en-us] & then click on OK & then click on OK in the options & restart your Firefox 29.

Also, if your problem is not solved by the solution above, simply start your Firefox in safe mode.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information.
Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions and some Preferences.

  • Open websites will not be saved in Firefox versions lower than 25.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

Does this happen with images from all sites or only one or two sites ?

What about images on this forum, such as the avatars for each poster in these threads.

Note it is possible to attach images to posts in the forum,use the add images [Browse] button under where you type.

I realise you said all images show the arabic. I am trying to determine if a closely related part of the Firefox interface is also showing numbers in arabic. The General tab also has data display fields in it and includes numerical data.

General tab numbers in Arabic also, i believe it's a problem with the new interface or something like that
