After Firefox has been open more than a few minutes, usually with at least two or three windows and/or tabs open, when I try to type accented characters (á, é, í, ó, ú Á É Í Ó Ú) they come out with an extra accent mark preceding the accented letter (´á ´é ´í ´ó ´ú). I usually have a WebWhatsApp window open.

This doesn't happen in other browsers or other programs that take text.

At the same time, the Ctrl+F (for find) function stops working. If I close all of the windows, and attempt to reopen Firefox, I get an error that says that Firefox is still running, and do I want to close it? I say yes, and it closes. And for a short or longer while, the problems go away. Then they come back.

Lenovo Flex 3 -1570 laptop, Windows 10 Home v. 1803 . Updated Firefox Quantum 66.0.5. Had Firefox "optimized" a few times by my Lenovo tech support subscription service. No effect.

While typing a message in Google Hangouts within Google Mail's web interface, it is impossible to enter the letter ć. The combination for the letter is RightAlt + c on most widely used Polish keyboard layout, that is Polish Programmer's Keyboard. Curiously enough, this problem **only affects Firefox browsers**, tested both stable and on Developer Edition. Opera and Chrome allow entering the letter just fine. Other specifically Polish letters don't seem to be affected.

This has already been confirmed by multiple reports to Google, as witnessed here: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/hangouts/S0wHpl_lCOs/ZXHVIHz8DQAJ, but no solution has been offered as of this time.

Just because I occasionally go to German websites, Firefox decided tochange my browsing to German. So now I can't pay for things I want to buy, because Firefox brings up pay input sites in German, with European zip code fields, which do not match the US fields. I have followed forum advice and cleared cookies and cache, no help. I checked my settings in Google Chrome, that says English. This is unbelievably frustrating. I NEVER asked any program to just mess with my language setting.

In English words have to be separated by spaces even if you use them together as composite concept. For example the concept "spelling check" is a composition of spelling and check. In Dutch those words should be spelled without space: "tekstcontrole" is correct, "tekst controle" isn't. The Firefox spell check is only recognizing the separate words (tekst and controle) and is underlining the contraction (tekstcontrole) as incorrect when in fact only the latter is correct. This is not an exception, in fact most sentences have such words, so using the Firefox spelling check in Dutch always results in lots of red lines.

Corperate softwarw download. so saying download another version is not going to help and it would not fix the issue.

so i download the version available Firefox ESR V2.4.8 - 2.4.5 (CCK2)

now for some reason it thinks i want FF in french I do not. and i do not have any idea why it chose french.

my location in Germany. my operating language is English. others in the office are German and and have German operating systems and they get FF in German. what gives?

yes i have been to Contenu - Langues - and selected English but as you know that only tells what language to show the pages in and has no bearing on the UI.

so back to the French would it have picked up on my corp. user name? or may family name? which just so happens to be French.

oh expect loads of spelling errors in this as the spell check is working overtime in FRENCH.

BUT FF is going that deep into the user info that is not good. So how do i change the language in the UI.

I've set everything to German (!), But Firefox still assumes that I prefer Spanish although I do not speak Spanish, probably because I installed Firefox for the first time, when I went on holiday with my notebook in Spain and used Spanish Wi-Fi. Since then, many platforms such as LinkedIn or Google always open up in Spanish for the first time. What can I do to ONLY get German or English at the first call of new pages? With the Chrome browser, the pages ALWAYS come in German or English, never in Spanish.

Hello Community,

i am currently using Firefox with the english and german language pack enabled. This way it displays the user-interface in german. I think that this eventually comes somehow from the system preferences..

if i deactivate the german language pack the user interface is in english - that is what i really want. but with a slight twist.. i don't like the currency, date and time formats. (it switches to the PM/AM and Month/Day/Year and so on..)

So i would like to combine the German currency, date and time formats with the english user-interface language. is this possible?

in my Operating System (Kubuntu 17.10) i have done this mix successfully. - so in theory the system already knows what i want...

any ideas on this are greatly appreciated.

I'm having this strange problem where most of my Firefox is in English, but the add-ons and any content related to them I see are all in Italian. It started when prior to a holiday, I was studying Italian, and I was trying to set all of my programs in Italian to try and immerse myself, and I can't remember what I did, but I managed to only make the add-ons switch to Italian, but now that my holiday's over, the add-ons are stuck on the language, and even uninstalling and reinstalling didn't fix it!

What do I do?
