How do I change the language of my Google search box back to english?

When I search using the Google search box at top right of page the results are all in German. I want to change back to English.

If the Google (Firefox) or Yahoo home page is in the wrong language then see:

Google.com in English - always '.com': https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/51000

when I go to those pages - I cannot read the language in order to make the changes. Is there something re: the firefox download that made this happen? Can someone walk me through how to change?
