I've installed FF 3.6.3 on a multi-user system with the German language; however I'ld like to have everything in English (interface, etc.) for my user without installing a separate version of FF in English.

I've found the setting general.useragent.locale and an extension, Quick locale switcher, but I don't actually understand where to get the locale from (en_US in my case, I guess).

I found pointers directing me to the official FTP release server with the hint to download the appropriate locale XPI, e.g. from , however there's none.

You can get language packs from AMO.

EDIT: According to this bug, there is no en-US language pack.

English (US) is not provided, which is the one I'm searching for. – mark May 30 '10 at 17:34
Nice, I'll accept it as it's the current status quo. I'm monitoring the Bugzilla entry and will report back once it's solved. – mark May 30 '10 at 18:58

Language packs can be installed from

English is probably already installed; see Tools, Addons for the list. Extensions are available to switch languages more easily than using Tools, Addons.
