Firefox in french

  Koochy 15:49 26 Jul 2006

I have just installed firefox and all was going great until about 5 minutes ago when the start page went to and when in the forum threads if i hover over the green words it pops up as normal but in french has anybody any ideas what has happened here please?

On the Google page, Preferences > change to English.

Vraiment interessant Koochy!

Just a thought, try going to Tools > Options and then click the 'Advanced' tab and go to "Edit Languages." Then select English/UK and click OK.

As for it changing spontaneously, je sais pas. :S

Thanks VoG that has sorted the home page bit but still when i hover over the green words the pop up appears in french. Any ideas?

Thanks for your input i have tried your suggestion but to no avail.
I know this is a trivial problem to most but it is a major thing to me.
Any other ideas greatfully received.

I think this is a Google problem rather than Firefox.........mine is doing the same thing.

I can get to no problem by typing it directly in the address bar but redirects to (Google France)

Firefox searches with

Same thing happens if I type into IE6.

If you key in it redirects you to - no doubt for advertising reasons..:-)

It's been like that for some time.

Do you have a French ISP? ...:-)

I use Firefox and have just typed in

If you edited google preferences for English, did you Save (the) Preferences?
