>>You need an English language version and there is no en-US language pack in
Firefox 3.6. If you do not want the download the en-US version then you can
install the en-GB language and switch to that version and remove the Spanish
es-ES language pack from the chrome folder in the Firefox program folder.
OK, you have French and not Spanish, and you may still have English but I
don't know how to test this.
