Whenever I search something on google from firefox, the displayed results such as (all,image,video)bar and wikipedia pages are in burmese. I have tried changing it from Settings/Preferences and even reinstalling but it still doesn't work. Is there any other solution you can think of? Thank you.

Are you signed in to Google? Open its settings and select English.

Ubuntu usually packs its own version with a lot of language packs.

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

You can create a new profile as a quick test to see if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.
