About 2 weeks ago my ads on websites started appearing in German rather than English. Also, notice from websites asking if I accept the use of cookies now appear in German (I think that's what they're saying). I don't know what I may have done to cause this. How can I switch these back to English?

Corperate softwarw download. so saying download another version is not going to help and it would not fix the issue.

so i download the version available Firefox ESR V2.4.8 - 2.4.5 (CCK2)

now for some reason it thinks i want FF in french I do not. and i do not have any idea why it chose french.

my location in Germany. my operating language is English. others in the office are German and and have German operating systems and they get FF in German. what gives?

yes i have been to Contenu - Langues - and selected English but as you know that only tells what language to show the pages in and has no bearing on the UI.

so back to the French would it have picked up on my corp. user name? or may family name? which just so happens to be French.

oh expect loads of spelling errors in this as the spell check is working overtime in FRENCH.

BUT FF is going that deep into the user info that is not good. So how do i change the language in the UI.

regards Nick

I've run malware scan (everything is fine). I have deleted cookies and cache, and it's fine for a couple of days, and then the Serbian/Russian language comes back. I am tired of deleting cookies/cache every 2 days and having to log in to my email account again and again. Anyone knows what's going on? Might have to give up on Firefox...

Deleting written character needs one more meaningless deletion

Not like English, in Korean, one single letter is combined with 2 or more characters. Ex) 대 = ㄷ + ㅐ, 한 = ㅎ + ㅏ + ㄴ, 민 = ㅁ + ㅣ + ㄴ, 국 = ㄱ + ㅜ + ㄱ So when you type Korean,… (read more)

Not like English, in Korean, one single letter is combined with 2 or more characters. Ex) 대 = ㄷ + ㅐ, 한 = ㅎ + ㅏ + ㄴ, 민 = ㅁ + ㅣ + ㄴ, 국 = ㄱ + ㅜ + ㄱ

So when you type Korean, there're 2 types of character status. 1) Completed letter 2) Uncompleted letter(where the focus of cursor at).

Case 1) has no problem. But in case 2), I need to push delete button one more time at the last remained character.

Ex) [Type ㅎ] : ㅎ [Type ㅏ] : 하 [Type ㄴ] : 한 [Delete]  : 하 (ㄴ removed) [Delete]  : ㅎ (ㅏ removed) [Delete]  : ㅎ (Here's a problem. Nothing changed and ㅎ is still there. [Delete]  : null (Then it's removed)


Seems nothing, but it's very uncomfortable to me.

I tried to change the language but the browser itself keeps being German, I can only set my preferred languages to English but that doensn't change anything, neither does re-downloading Firefox nor re-downloading Firefox in English - the browser is always in German and that's annoying because then, pages like airbnb are in german too. Everything else on my mac is in English.

Just as the question says... don't want to see or have to de-select the 'default' US English in either spell-check or language selections. I have add-ons for French and English English which I use regularly but can't seem to find a solution to remove the US version. It isn't listed in the dictionaries list I can access so any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance UK

The spell checker on Firefox tells me that my US spelling (with a US setting) is incorrect with British alternatives. If I type anything that has a different British spelling, the spell checker highlights the word. When I check for corrections, they are all British spellings of the same word. When I try to change the setting to see if it has become flipped, I can't get the menu of options. I'm using Ubuntu 16.10 on a HP Pavilion DV6500 with a full boot.
