I just can't understand why Firefox and Thunderbird are now in an Asian language. I don't think I did anything specific, but I was trying to get my microsoft keyboard to produce Pound Sterling symbols rather than dollars.

Internet Explorer is still in English, but Microsoft Help & Support is in the Asian language.

I had another go at looking at the problem, and went to Control Pane/ Regional & Language Options / Advanced, and not sure if I had changed anything here- anyway it is set for UK, which is where I live.

hope someone can help

thanks

if u go back to Regional and Language options, then click on Languages tab is the "Install files for East Asian languages" checked off? If it is just uncheck it and reboot.

Hi there

I have just had another look at Firefox and Thunderbird and the language is not Asian as I thought, but has a very truncated look as the upper case letters have gone down and the lower case letters are extremely small. In fact I can make the font larger with the 'increase text size', but it looks extremely strange with the Capital letters so far below the lowercase letters.
Any ideas how I can get back to normal would be appreciated.

best wishes
Mike

Hi cgesicki

I don't understand the things that happen on computers. My problem seems to have sorted itself out - don't know how. I looked at the fonts folder in control panel plus in extensis suitcase and all the usual system fonts etc weren't there. But, today they are back and everything is okay. Plus I have found the key for the £ sign - I am absolutely positive it wasn't there before.

Thanks for your help anyway
Mike
