posted in: Tutorials | 0

firefox-256I like to have my global system locale in English, but I mus use Firefox and Thunderbird in pt-PT so if anyone has a similar need, here’s how to do it.

  1. Install the language pack for the desired languages.
  2. Type about:config into the address bar and press Enter.
  3. To bypass the warning, press the big button labeled “I’ll be careful, I promise!”.
  4. In the search box, paste intl.locale.matchOS
  5. In the search results, if intl.locale.matchOS is set to true, double-click it to set its value to false.
  6. In the search box, paste general.useragent.locale
  7. In the search results, double-click general.useragent.locale and set its value to the desired language.
  8. Restart Firefox for the change to take effect.
