Just because I occasionally go to German websites, Firefox decided tochange my browsing to German. So now I can't pay for things I want to buy, because Firefox brings up pay input sites in German, with European zip code fields, which do not match the US fields. I have followed forum advice and cleared cookies and cache, no help. I checked my settings in Google Chrome, that says English. This is unbelievably frustrating. I NEVER asked any program to just mess with my language setting.

Hello Community,

i am currently using Firefox with the english and german language pack enabled. This way it displays the user-interface in german. I think that this eventually comes somehow from the system preferences..

if i deactivate the german language pack the user interface is in english - that is what i really want. but with a slight twist.. i don't like the currency, date and time formats. (it switches to the PM/AM and Month/Day/Year and so on..)

So i would like to combine the German currency, date and time formats with the english user-interface language. is this possible?

in my Operating System (Kubuntu 17.10) i have done this mix successfully. - so in theory the system already knows what i want...

any ideas on this are greatly appreciated.

sunny greetings stefan

Just as the question says... don't want to see or have to de-select the 'default' US English in either spell-check or language selections. I have add-ons for French and English English which I use regularly but can't seem to find a solution to remove the US version. It isn't listed in the dictionaries list I can access so any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance UK

I cannot get this sorted, I live in Vietnam, that's it, I don't speak the lingo + therefore I've obviously never selected any options, or anything in V'mese, but I'm plagued by it!! It's sporadic, yahoo homepage, google stuff + so on, I went to hook up my gmail to a new mail client I've got + the gmail stuff was all in V'mese + that was that. I'm no tech guy, no one at support is either, from what I can make out, is setting things up in English, just English, so involved?? Apparently it is, anyone got any ideas I'd be most grateful............either that or I'll move, or maybe just learn the bloody language!?!?!

About 2 weeks ago my ads on websites started appearing in German rather than English. Also, notice from websites asking if I accept the use of cookies now appear in German (I think that's what they're saying). I don't know what I may have done to cause this. How can I switch these back to English?

While typing a message in Google Hangouts within Google Mail's web interface, it is impossible to enter the letter ć. The combination for the letter is RightAlt + c on most widely used Polish keyboard layout, that is Polish Programmer's Keyboard. Curiously enough, this problem **only affects Firefox browsers**, tested both stable and on Developer Edition. Opera and Chrome allow entering the letter just fine. Other specifically Polish letters don't seem to be affected.

This has already been confirmed by multiple reports to Google, as witnessed here: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/hangouts/S0wHpl_lCOs/ZXHVIHz8DQAJ, but no solution has been offered as of this time.

Corperate softwarw download. so saying download another version is not going to help and it would not fix the issue.

so i download the version available Firefox ESR V2.4.8 - 2.4.5 (CCK2)

now for some reason it thinks i want FF in french I do not. and i do not have any idea why it chose french.

my location in Germany. my operating language is English. others in the office are German and and have German operating systems and they get FF in German. what gives?

yes i have been to Contenu - Langues - and selected English but as you know that only tells what language to show the pages in and has no bearing on the UI.

so back to the French would it have picked up on my corp. user name? or may family name? which just so happens to be French.

oh expect loads of spelling errors in this as the spell check is working overtime in FRENCH.

BUT FF is going that deep into the user info that is not good. So how do i change the language in the UI.

The Language selector menu from the right-click menu does not select the chosen language to use for spell checking.

I have only 1 dictionary installed, the British english dictionary, but both United kingdom and United states appear in the language menu. Selecting either of these does not work, there's no checkmark or anything next to the selected language. The spell checker works except for US/GB word spelling differences.

This started a few months ago and despite having all updates and even trying a new profile nothing seems to get the language selector to work.

The language selector menu from the right-click menu doesn't print out correctly the language name of the spellchecker dictionary.

I have installed the venetan dictionary (language code ISO639-3 vec) I've created (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dithionario-de-lengua-v%C3%A8neta/?src=ss) but in the right-click menu appears the language "vec" alongside my default "English (United States)". Why doesn't it spell out "Venetan"? Is there something I did wrong?

I tried to change the language but the browser itself keeps being German, I can only set my preferred languages to English but that doensn't change anything, neither does re-downloading Firefox nor re-downloading Firefox in English - the browser is always in German and that's annoying because then, pages like airbnb are in german too. Everything else on my mac is in English.

Hebrew doesn't display in the Firefox search box or in the title of tabs. But when I type in the Firefox search box and hit enter, it performs the search and the writing displays correctly in the Google search box in the Google results page. Firefox is the latest version. Mac is OS X 10.6.8. I see that Microchip470 posted the exact same problem.
