I want firefox in ENGLISH NOTHING ELSE

I want to browse the internet in english, I want my firefox to be in english and I dont want to have to set google back to english everytime I'm trying to search something. I dont know why Mozilla thinks everything has to be translated now a days, but some people like me can actually read and write english despite not living in an english speaking country. I do all my work from my computer, which involves a lot of research and general doing stuff on the internet, and troubleshooting something or looking something up has always been and will always be easier and more comprehensive in english. WHAT should I do? PLEASE.

It is probably Google doing this. You can click the link to go to Google.com. Such a setting is stored in a cookie on your computer, so if you do not keep that cookie via an allow exception or remove it otherwise then Google will revert to the local page you need to redo the change to the English site.

I agree that it is Google going based on your IP location.

I cannot understand what you wrote. I still have no idea what to do. I function only in ENGLISH but I live in Argentina. Firefox thinks I out to always go to Google.ar, but that is deleted by a moderator. I want Google.com in USA ONLY. Please help directly to email address deleted. Thank you

The localized Google pages have a link at the bottom to got to the international (English) Google.com page.

Such a choice is kept in a Google PREF cookie, so you need to make sure to keep that cookie and if necessary create an allow exception.

There is no provision of such a list as "Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Exceptions"" beyond Tools.....

Let me also say here in a general way that Mozilla Firefox really irritates me, unlike Internet Explorer. IE ALWAYS comes up in ENGLISH. And IE provides an easy way to dump/erase a website address when I want to weed the search table. Why can't Firefox be as considerate? I have to believe that most of the users are not computer nerds who can sort out a problem but many are like me, very old and unschooled in computer software mysteries.

If you are not on Windows then instead of Tools > Options use:

  • Mac: Firefox > Preferences
  • Linux: Edit > Preferences
  • Windows: Firefox > Options

Press F10 if the menu bar is hidden on Windows and Linux or use "Firefox > Options/Preferences"


To see all history and cookie settings, use:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > History: Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
