I use Firefox as my main browser but, in Gmail it always defaults to English US although I change it to English UK. I use this because of spell check in Australian English I have checked Gmail settings and Google settings. All are English UK. If I use Chrome, I always get English UK when I open Gmail.com. Why can't I change to UK in Gmail when using Firefox?

Hi there,

Is English UK set to Top? Firefox usually read language from top, so and fall back to second, third etc option.

That's a mystery to me because I have English (UK) as the default in Gmail settings and it stays constant. Perhaps you do need to change Firefox Settings (on the General page).

Thanks for your reply. I don't know if it is something to do with being in Australia. I have gone through all the settings in Gmail and firefox and they all show English Untied Kingdom but when I open Gmail it is back to US. I can change it before I sign in so it's no big problem. It is strange that it is ok when I use Chrome or other Browzers. Cheers.

Thanks TNorth. Perhaps it is something to do with my PC. Never mind, it is only a minor thing. I just change it when I go into Gmail. Cheers

Hey TNorth, I think I just solved the problem. It was in the SETTINGS on Open Home Page. I put up English UK and then selected USE CURRENT PAGES (which I always do) and it seems to have solved the problem. A little thing I missed. Always the simple things. Cheers

What languages for webpages do you have installed and in what order ?

What Firefox locale do you use (en-US or en-GB or different) ?
