Firefox starting in German with home page I didn't choose
Beginning just a few hours ago, Firefox is starting up in German, which I don't read, with a home page I didn't choose, as shown in the attached image. I've tried going thru the options to change this but nothing seems to help. I restarted my computer (Windows 10) and no difference. The version is 78.3.1esr (64-Bit) and says it is up to date. How can I get back to English and no home page (just an empty tab is my preferred startup)? Thanks for any assistance. (I tried searching for a problem like this in the help and came up empty.)
Something seems to have gone wrong with the desktop shortcut that starts Firefox, but by looking thru the settings I have no idea what. I copied a different one that still worked and the problem is gone (for now at least).Прочитайте этот ответ в контексте 👍 0

That was very good work. Well Done.
Do you only have one Firefox version installed or do you possibly have more than one version installed like 32-bit and 64-bit ?
I did. When I just now uninstalled the 64-bit version, the uninstaller ran in German. So it must have somehow gotten switched to that.
I had a similar problem on my Windows 10 computer only a few hours ago. I opened settings, searched for time & language, clicked on language & clicked on: remove German as additional display language for my computer, which in part was understandable via a set of icons. I had originally installed it, thinking, that it would help with my Office 2020 Family subscription in : Word, by automatically correcting correctly also in German. That was not the case, but requires a different path. What installing German in settings as added language accomplished was, that all of my computer display language was changed to German, which is not practical, since I live in the USA. If you have a different OS than Windows, you may want to type into an address bar the internet address for your OS & there ask your question, in case their browser organization uses webpages with different names. It would probably be a synonymous term (word) to settings. The translation into another language or from another language worked that way too for my Windows 10 computer regarding my problem mentioned earlier.
