Hi I am having problems with the language in firefox. All the pages and menus are still displayed in English but whenever I type in firefox it comes up as some strange language. I cant type engllish in web adresses bar or the google search bar or anything. I dont want to reinstall firefox, does anyone know where the setting is to change this?

Thanks.

Welcome to PressF1 Talos

Check
Control Panel
Regional and Language options

Make sure they are set to
English New Zealand

and down the bottom Location = New Zealand

Another thing to check is in Firefox itself

Tools/
Options/
Content/
under Fonts anc Colours click
Advanced/
Make sure the encoding down the bottom is set too
Western (ISO-8859-1)

If theae sections are fine, uninstall any asian language packs you have as these tend to conflict.

Ok great. I played around with the settings in ther language options and got rid of the additional language support and that seems to have fixed it. Thanks a lot for your help
