How to Add Preferred Languages in Mozilla Firefox

These days many websites are offering content in many different languages. When you visit such a website, your browser automatically chooses a language from the ones offered by that website. The Mozilla Firefox browser allows you to set preferred languages to be used on such websites. You can set a list of preferred languages on order of precedence from up to down. By default the English version of Firefox has only English (US) or English (UK) listed in this list, but you can add other languages if you want to. Here is how :

  1. Open Mozilla Firefox browser. Click on the orange Firefox button on the top-left corner and select Options → Options from the menu that appears.

  4. You can change the preference order of a language by selecting it in the list and clicking on either Move Down or Move Up button. To remove a language from the list, you can select it and then click on the Remove button. It is recommended that you do not remove the English language from the list as most of the websites are designed to be displayed in English.
