Firefox's display language settings are not applying. I've set them to english, but it's still displaying everything in another language.

Menus on Firefox itself are displaying in my native language, when I've set them to English.

I've uninstalled all language packs that aren't English, even removed other languages in Windows settings to make sure Firefox displays menus in the language I want, but none of it worked. Already checked about:config and removed any traces of other languages. The settings page itself and other Mozilla webpages are all displaying in the correct language, but the application itself is not.

It started doing this after the most recent update, was working fine before. Only explanation is Firefox is using my location to set a language and completely ignoring my language settings. Should I just wait for it to be fixed?

As above. FF installed the update despite the checked option to NOT install automatically. NO "old firefox" folder was created-anywhere. No other profile is present that has the old data. My adult daughter's grad school laptop. Years of bookmarks, logins and I do not know what all ARE GONE!! I allowed FF to download but NOT INSTALL-since it was not my machine and I wanted to avert any disaster (I, in fact, looked at the options first, to make sure) NOW WHAT?? Is that is a bug?? Why was there no "old FF" created? Why did it install regardless of instructions to the contrary. Is there some other place to look? She does not seem to have any automatic backups for FF profiles.

How can I change the sizes of fonts and icons in the Menu and Toolbars?

I'm using Firefox 67.0 under MX Linux. My monitor is 25" with a resolution of 1920x1200. With this resolution, the text and icons in Firefox Menu and Toolbars are tiny and almost impossible to read. The Thunderbird add-on Theme and Font Size Changer works reasonably well for Thunderbird, so is there a corresponding add-on for Firefox?

I know that Firefox is largely developed by people who are volunteers, but it seems that a tool, as part of the basic Firefox program, should be available to make these changes without installing add-ons or modifying the code manually. Almost everyone needs to be able to tweak these things at one time or another.
