Hello, at each firefox update, on each session of my PC, under ubuntu 20.04, the language is reset (in English) and the default search engine changes (I use Qwant). Do others have the same problem?

Bonjour, à chaque mise à jour de firefox, sur chaque session de mon PC, sous ubuntu 20.04, la langue se réinitialise (en anglais) et le moteur de recherche par défaut change (j'utilise Qwant). D'autres on-ils le même problème ?

I've never seen this happen with Firefox from the Mozilla server.

Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.

Note that Ubuntu usually adds a lot of locales to their Firefox version unlike Firefox from the Mozilla server that only comes in one language although you can install additional language packs.
