I accidentally cleared all my cookies. Now I get the Japanese home page and I want ONLY the English home page

Posted

I accidentally cleared all my cookies. Now I get the Japanese home page and I want ONLY the English home page. I was on the home page at the time & I copied the address. It is still in my preferences section. but even when I paste it in, I still get the Japanese site. How do I get the English site back, and ensure that I never see the japanese site on my computer ever again?
