How to change the interface to different language?

continuation of this thread - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223137

I've followed the https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-firefox-interface-other-languages-language-pack. However it doesn't change the interface language. They are still all in English.

I've just updated it to the latest version in order to use the language pack.

I do this instead of using an edition of the language I want because I suppose I could change the language on the fly, instead of installing two editions of different languages on the same system.

Version 61.0.1 being used (64-bit). Win 7. Menu being cut in half. Can be reset by toggling menu on and off, but it comes back. Saw the reference to similar problem in 2017 question that was attributed to "Tab Groups" extension, but I do not have that ext. The only remotely related extension I have is Vertical Tabs. And although I love that extension, I actually had it disabled because I have been using Web Developer docked to the side for the last few days and the problem is still happening. So definitely not it.

Other than the super-duper Vertical Tabs, I have: Decentraleyes, Disconnect, Flag Fox, Font Finder, Google Search Link Fix, Nimbus, NoScript, Turn-off-the-lights, and U-Block Origin. Pretty basic add-ons. Theme is default, and no other ones loaded. (I'm very boring). Open264 and Widevine plugins only. Images attached.

As waiting for it to revert can take hours, it could take well over a week to test all of my extensions. So I figured I would check to see if anyone else had similar problems and figured something out.

It's not a huge deal. Like I said, you can get it back simply by turning the menu off and on. But it does revert and it gets annoying as I do use the menu quite a bit, and I usually end up clicking on the tab instead of the menu item. So I always have to get it to its normal size.

Anyone else having this problem?

All right, basically, I have one big problem and one smaller problem. The big one is that firefox is really slow to load bing, pages taking upwards of 30 seconds to load fully, and most of the time the page loads, and then it buffers and buffers while it loads the rest of it (like the rewards thingy, and my profile icon, and the options)

I've tried disabling plugins, and nothing works. Also, on Reddit, my RES subreddit list and my never-ending-reddit thing both never work and they tell me to add firefox to the cookie exceptions and while I did, that doesn't work either.

And I don't think my Ryzen 5 or GTX 1070 or 32GB of ram or SSD could have a part in this...

I have a lot of bookmarks and folders with bookmarks in the bookmarks menu. Why must I SCROLL all the way up and down for everything? For example, The home key doesn't get me to the top of the list like I thought it would and I don't know any key combo that will. I have to put the pointer on the tiny arrow at the top of the bookmarks list, then scroll up to the top. Annoying. Also, why can't I keep a list open, for example "other bookmarks" instead of always going back to it, open it up and scroll some more to find what I want. And show all bookmarks doesn't do what I'm looking for here.

While I'm asking questions, There are two users on my laptop. the second one has a password to enter it. The primary and second user bookmarks seemed to have merged. Two accounts with Comcast, two users names & profiles, yet now I'm seeing bookmarks from each on the other users bookmark list. How could that happen? I do use Icloud to have cloud features ( calendars, reminders, etc) set up to show on my Windows 7 and vice versa. I'm not computer savvy so please any answers--dumb it down for me!

I have tried the suggestion and none work... https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1198817

I used to use an app for this and it no longer works either.

The font size for websites I was able to set @ 1.25 in about:config and are perfect size for me

But still the text size in the Firefox program is showing very small and hard to read.

Seems that every cosequent update strips away a needed feature. When searching for addons, the majority I select are no longer functioning.

For the past few days, Firefox has been extremely slow to load pages at startup. The browser itself launches pretty much instantly, but it's taking over six minutes after that just to look up domains. At some point it gets past whatever hiccup is holding things up and browsing works for the rest of the session -- noticeably slower than usual, but usable.

It happens with add-ons disabled, after multiple refreshes, and even after a full reinstall (with new profile). I've played with all the common suspects -- disabling accessibility options, hardware acceleration, IPv6, etc. I closed my pinned tabs and disabled auto-restoring the previous session. I even disabled Avast and MalwareBytes. Nothing has helped so far (which is seriously disappointing, considering the 6-minute restart between each change!)

The odd thing is that there are a few seconds, immediately after startup, where things seem to work normally. If I'm quick, I can sometimes get most of one webpage to load before the problem begins.

I've been a Firefox power user since version 0.6.2 and never encountered anything like this. I'm very comfortable with changing settings, configuration files, etc., and am willing to try just about anything to get things cranking again. But right now I'm simply out of other ideas to try.

Using 61.0.2, 64-bit version on fully-patched Windows 10 on a very fast fiber connection. <edit> I also tried the 32-bit version; no joy. </edit>

my windows7 taskbar: 11+ replicate FF windows w-multiple tabs each is normal use for me. restart FF puts them in new order L to R i can deal with that but would like to be able to restart with these icons staying in the 'same places' because i'm getting old and cranky and forget where i put things more often now.

they're all up there on the taskbar OK but in a different order each time i restart FF. i don't recall locating a Topic similar, or seeing a likely category from Options.

i'm not in a Rush, but have found FF help questions successfully answered in the past. thanks for helping.

Suddenly when i go to the websites of netflix and stackoverflow i only see text. Image of stackoverflow provided. These are the only ones where i've noticed it at least. I searched online forever and i cleared recent history of today (all of the options except offline website data and site preferences), because it worked fine yesterday, but that didn't help.

If i open firefox in safemode, it works fine. If i the pages in chrome it also works fine. No idea what i did to make this suddenly happen. Hopefully you can help me fix this really annoying problem, i refuse to re-install and set things up from scratch, because it should just work and i didn't do anything.

Firefox help says "When you enter a username and password that you haven't already saved for a website, Firefox will ask if you want to save it. "

But it doesn't always. I want it to remember username/password for a particular website, but Firefox doesn't ask. I have "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" checked, and the website is not on my saved logons list. Is there a way to force Firefox to remember the username/password for a particular site, perhaps by manually editing the saved logons list (where is it?)? Thanks.
