I've installed the British English Dictionary and Language pack. They are confirmed as active in Add-on Manager. Using the latest version of Firefox at present. Version 61.0. Checking for updates from About finds no newer version.

Yet, still Firefox insists on trying to make everything American English. How can I stop it doing that?

Is the only way to completely remove it and start again from the beginning?

Windows 10.

After each of at least the last three Firefox updates (I was gone in the month of May and thus may be unaware of other updates), the language bar will not perform properly. Microsoft Word accepts Japanese entry correctly, but in Firefox it does not operate properly, specifically: once the language option is set to "Japanese," with input specified to be via hiragana, when I enter text it appears in unhighlighted Latin letters and neither offers kanji suggestions nor allows kana input.

My machine is a fully updated Windows XP machine. This problem always appears immediately after a Firefox update.

Every time I start Firefox, the language is set to UK English. I live in the US and the spell checker flags words that are spelled right for the US, but if I make a typo and use the UK spelling, it passes that (and I sometimes miss the typo).

I change the setting to US English and it's fine until I reboot the computer, then I have to do it all again. I admit this is a very minor problem, but it is really frustrating at times - I count on my spell checker because I do make a lot of typos and it helps to catch them (strange neurological condition I won't go into - kind of like dyslexia in the fingers).

Is there some way to FORCE Firefox to start in US English every time? Some line I could add to the about:config for instance?

OS: Linux Ubuntu 14.04LTS Using Gnome (old style) desktop only, Firefox 39.03, I usually have Thunderbird 31.8 and OpenOffice 4.1 all open at the same time, on dual monitors.

I am trilingual and thus installed support for English, Spanish and German and while on my phone, the keyboard is getting smart enough to guess sort of, which language I am writing the current word in, on the Desktop Browser I am not happy at all with how language needs manual switching. Worse, it shows completely pointless locales that I never consciously installed or asked for. 5 English locales, 6 German locales and 22 Spanish locales doesn't make it easier to switch languages. I end up picking random locales with the occasional surprises but would prefer to hide all but one locale per language, with a hotkey to cycle through or pick. How can I achieve a smoother language switching?

Can Firefox HTTP basic authentication dialog handle non-english user name and password?

Firefox's HTTP basic authentication dialog is encoding non-english user name and passwords incorrectly. Everything works when I enter English user name and password. However, if I input valid user name and/or password with non-english character(s) in them, I cannot login. The authentication fails.

I turned to Fiddler and found that FireFox is sending incorrectly encoded Authorization header. Traces below. If I send correctly encoded Authorization header everything works. The test below uses Chinese characters.

Working scenario using English user name and password:


GET http://myhost:8080/notification/syndication HTTP/1.1 Accept-Language: en-US User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/7.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E) Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Connection: Keep-Alive Authorization: Basic dXNlcjE6cGFzc3dvcmQ= Host: myhost:8080


Non-working scenario using non-English character user name and password:


GET http://myhost:8080/notification/syndication HTTP/1.1 Accept-Language: en-US User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/7.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E) Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Connection: Keep-Alive Authorization: Basic e1UNOnNwc3M= Host: myhost:8080

Note the incorrect Authorization header string product by Firefox code: Authorization: Basic e1UNOnNwc3M=

Correct base64 encoding would have yielded this authorization header instead: Authorization: Basic 55m75b2V5ZCNOnNwc3M=

Is this a bug in Firefox? Perhaps there is a configuration change that I need to make to input non-English user name and password in the basic authentication dialog? Chrome does not have this issue. Internet Explorer has the same problem.

I've tried playing about with location settings, as much as I dare, and whatever else my limited know-how allows, but I keep getting sites I use all the time in V'mese and it's driving me mad. All I can think of now is to learn the damned lingo, problem is I just can't make some of the necessary noises, it's physiologically not possible for me, I'm Vietnamese Vernacular Deficient (V.V.D.S. as it's not better known as!) so any help with getting English plumbed in as the one, and only I hope, language option would be hugely appreciated. Hope to hear of a solution soon, thanks for reading,

Whenever I use the Hiragana input method for Japanese (Mac) the keyboard freezes up every other time I try to type. After typing one sentence or phrase in Japanese, I need to manually switch to another language, then switch back to Japanese to unfreeze the keyboard for use in Firefox. I seems to get stuck when I am offered to choose between homophonous logographs i.e. 用紙 and 要旨, and although the arrow keys work to toggle between different choices, 'enter' nor 'space bar' will register, thus preventing me from naturally exiting the drop down scroll and moving on. This problem only occurs inside Firefox, and only with Japanese Hiragana (Chinese Pinyin works fine ironically). In Safari and other browsers the input method also works fine. Thank you for answering my question.
