Can't remove US English

I've just added UK English and restarted Firefox. Now, why can I not remove US English, even though that one shouldn't be in use, and I still can remove UK English, even though that one *is* in use (or should be)?

Greying out a button is only recommended when it's crystal clear why that is. In this case, I have no clue why I couldn't remove US English, and so gryeing out that button makes no sense to me. It should be enabled, and display a message explaining why a language can't be removed if it can't be.

For the moment, can someone please explain why US English can't be removed then?

I also have this problem - somebody in an archived thread said you need to clear caches through a command line but the link to the command line explainer page was broken. Did you manage to fix this?

This is likely because you use the en-US Firefox release. You can't remove the default language, you can only remove languages you added yourself to this panel.

If you do not want to show en-US, but only want to see en-GB then install the en-GB version and not the en-US version and the en-GB language pack like the OP probably did.

You can find the full version of the current Firefox release (92.0) in all languages and all operating systems here:
