Hello,

Since version 92.0.1 (64-Bit) the language of the menus is fixed to English. Settings in Tools->Settings->General have no effect. I set it (back) to German, restarted Firefox, but the language is still in English.
How to fix that?

Have you tried downloading and installing the German version -- https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/a ... op-release

You can try to clear the startup cache via the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page.

I've been advised:

1) Open about:addons, Languages section, try manually searching for updates to the add-ons. Then restart and see if anything changes.
2) If that still doesn't work, from about:support try clearing the start-up cache (it's internal cache, nothing to do with browsing cache, there's no data loss).

Those didn't have any effect. So, knowing where to look I reinstalled the language pack (delete, restart, add from https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/a ... uage-pack/). The language is back to German. Everything is fine.

I have Firefox installed since years, so I just accept the update when it is announced. The update process looked the same as all previous ones, just that the language was fixed.
It's solved, see my other post.
