About a week ago, Firefox began occasionally opening a webpage or even my Google login window in some random language. Opening a new tab and closing the errant tab would result in the same page opening correctly in English. The language used when Firefox erred was never the same twice. In the last couple days the rate of errors has accelerated. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Is someone other than me using my Firefox credentials?

The browser's interface language, including links, menus, ads etc., changes without warning into languages I don't know. Sometimes the whole screen is in one language, at other times, several languages are on the same page. Even after re-selecting the preferred language, the problem persists.

Hello!

I am multilingual and write in multiple different languages, and the red markings from spellcheck underneath non-English sentences get annoying when they are so frequent. I understand that I can install multiple dictionaries, but that does not allow me to use more than one language's spellcheck at a time.

Is it possible to activate 2+ language dictionaries in Firefox?

Thanks for the help, Sylvan

System message in multiple languages

I have English and German installed in Windows and Firefox (Well and Russian, but Russian does not give any issues) English is set as system language in Windows. English … (read more)

I have English and German installed in Windows and Firefox (Well and Russian, but Russian does not give any issues) English is set as system language in Windows. English is set as the preferred Menu and Content Language in Firefox. The menu is displayed in English as it should be.

Problem now is, some Firefox messages, i.g. the message that a website is asking me to confirm I want to leave, is in German, for apparently no reason. Even on English websites. It's not a major inconvenience, just weird.

I attempted to remove German from the alternative menu languages, for testing, but cannot. English and German both cannot be removed. A third language I add randomly can be removed.

I am aware that the locale I downloaded Firefox in cannot be removed, but I hardly downloaded Firefox in two Locales at the same time, did I? From what I can see I originally probably downloaded German Locale, since English is listed under Language Add-ons.

So what I am curious about is, how is it possible that Firefox gives me part of the menu/browser messages in English and parts of it in German? Does the English Language lack some translations? Hardly I'd guess. And why do I have two languages I cannot remove?
