    Hi all,
    YouTube (and Google) keeps changing my language settings to the local one after every ~10th watched video, even though my preferred one would be English. I did:

    1. a browser reinstall (didn't help)
    2. a complete system reinstall with the same browser (didn't help)
    3. switched to a different browser (didn't help)

    Fun fact: I use two computers - a desktop and a laptop. On the laptop my browser not only retains the language settings, but for some weird reason YT's old layout as well (without any special browser extension). To make sure later I copied all of its settings to my desktop's (exact same) browser but YT still kept on living its own life. Both PC's run the same OS and have the same language settings as well.

    The people and Google's tech minions wouldn't help us at the Google Product Forum site even though there's tons and tons of posts about the automatic language switching issue.
    Your help is greatly appreciated.
