I spent several months in a foreign country (Ukraine). Now, many websites that I visit (at least the ones that support it) default to Russian. I'm worried that I might have some type of malware on my system (Mac OSX 10.6.5).

How can I go about discovering the root cause of this? I've checked out my linux process list and don't see anything that seems out of the ordinary running.

Open the "Language & Text" preference pane and check where Russian is in the list; all the languages there are considered, in order, when displaying things.

Firefox has its own version of that, also; in FF4, Preferences > Content and click the button at the lower right to display the preferred languages list.
