***Please note, some languages are not in the same format as the English language. Some go from right to left instead of left to right. The placement of the words and buttons may be opposite from what is stated.
If this does NOT work then
go to control panel and remove Mozilla Firefox.
Right click on start
left click explore

look for the Mozilla Firefox folder
right click on the folder and delete it.
Restart your computer.
Log in to an unrestricted account.
Download and install Mozilla Firefox from the beginning. I hope you wanted the English version.
Everything should be where you can then understand it.

You are posting to a 2 year old thread.
I assume you noticed that with your, "come on!" comment.
Since then, Firefox has been updated a number of times. I am using version 3.0.7. Which version are you using?
In version 3.0.7 the language option has moved. With Firefox open, goto Tools > Options, and click the "Content" tab.
There you will find a section called Languages, and a button for "Choose". Click that.
In the new window, where it says, "Select a language to add...", click the down arrow. Scroll down to the language you want to add. Click Add.
Move the language you have just added to the top of the 'order of preference' list in that window, or wherever you want it placed.
Perhaps you could have found this yourself with a little delving and looking around.
Mark is right!
Firefox has been updated many times since then.
Click tools, options,content(3rd tab), choose(bottom button in box)
Then select the language in the white box or use the drop down menu to choose a new language, not listed.
No, that's for changing the web pages language.
These steps you mentionned don't change the language of Firefox menus and titles. They change the display language of the web pages.
Replying to a post that's over a year old
Doesn't seem right.

how to change Firefox from Spanish to English language
I love these kind of instructions, step by step. I used to have Firefox in English, but it somehow changed to Spanish. The instructions below from Rick work up to the 4th item, click on general. Then there is no language box or icon to click on. In this box I have Accesibilidad with 3 check boxes under it, then Navegacion with three boxes under it, then Por Drfecto with one check box. None have anything to do with language so far as I can tell. Under Options, Contenido, there is a language selection, and I have selected English, but the menus in Firefox do not change.
That sounds right
The Language option in browsers helps us to read displayed web pages in different languages. It does not change Windows and so does not change the overall look of the browsers.
Your problem looks like a Windows problem, not a browser problem.
Why not uninstall this English version ...
and download and install the Spanish again?
OUT OF DATE
Does not help for Firefox 8.0
Well, that post
was made in 2007 so I would assume you are using a different version of Firefox than then.
Did you try Firefox > Options > Options, (again), > Content tab?
As an update...ADVANCED should be CONTENT
Click Tools > Options > Content > At languages click Choose > CLick Select a language to add if the language you need isn't already in your list. > Move up or Down so that desired language is on the top of your list.
Why not uninstall and download the right version?
change language (menu items)
in the url bar, type in
find the line:
and change to en-US for us language.
my mistake, i meant type about:config NOT about.config
This helped so much, my GUI was in German and I couldn't understand any of it except OK... xD
In Firefox 3.0.3 the language settings has moved
Thanks... that solved everything...
Thanx buddy.it help me too
went through the config files and changed to en-US from TH, *very difficult language...*
now what? restart? close the file?? not changed from the VERY difficult language.
plz help have a native reader and she cant figure out. not sure what version firefox im using, im guessing out dated too! maybe gonna have to download the new one. but still trying.
Did you try
the simple way?
Firefox > Options > Options, then Contents tab, then Languagess
if that fails, then I'm guessing uninstall and reinstall is the only option.
Firefox 3 Language setting - sure it's not Google?
I came across this thread while trying to correct my own firefox 3 langauge problems. I got stuck with Arabic, based on location, despite dowloading en-gb. Changing the settings within firefox made no difference and the firefox menu bar WAS in English. I got the answer on another site and thought I'd post it here - my settings problem was in Google, the default display page, not Firefox. To correct it, open firefox and when the google page comes up, click on the 'google' shortcut - the only thing I had in English - change your settings, save your preferences, and voila, it displays correctly. Hope this helps someone else.
1. Remove firefox
2. set Location on Control Panel/Regional and Language options to United State (if you need all menu bar in English)
3. Open browser, go to www.mozilla.com, it will re-direct you to en-US page
4. Download firefox
5. Install firefox
How To change language in firefox
Could you please tell me that which version of Firefox you are using ?
Why do you want to know
This thread was started in 2007. Why do you want to know that now, 2 years later?
I suspect the original poster has either solved the problem or moved on.
One other thing. Firefox has been updated a number of times since then. I can't remember what version of Firefox I was using 2 years ago.
In my post Dated 3/7/09
I gave instructions using version 3.0.7
