Home page in foreign languages

Post by tman801 » 2021-03-31, 19:36

When I opened Palemoon just now it opened the Home page in a foreign language. How do I set it back to English?

The default home page start.me?
This might be caused by false geo location data.
You can try to use https://palemoon.start.me/uk as a home page. This should directly open the English page.
Powerline adapters (dLAN) hardly interfere shortwave radio, so stop using them.

Yes, I still use a 64 bit capable Pentium 4 670 processor with Pale Moon.

Thank you for answering. I tried your uk and when I clicked on the palemoon home page it opened in foreign language. I believe it is in Greek but what do I know. If I copy the words to text or to DuckDuck it is translated back to English. I am dual booting both W10 and Ubuntu 20.04 with Palemoon 29.1.1. Palemoon home page opens in foreign language in W10 also.

What happens if you open https://palemoon.start.me/uk via you URL bar?
I tried it with different countries, it worked.

There are two ways.

1) Tools -> Preferences -> Content tab -> Languages (Choose button)

2) https://duckduckgo.com/settings
Select language.

I can confirm:

Copying the gibberish and pasting to a text file pastes in english, not gibberish.
Server error.

Yes that is exactly what I have. Do you know how to correct it?

Only the server Admin can fix it.

So I need to call my cable provider to fix it?

Here it is ... I did not understand first.

http://www.palemoon.org/pagestyle.css
Incorrect font "ModernWakandan".
Turn off "Allow pages to choose their own fonts" as a workaround.
Tools -> Preferences -> Content tab -> Fonts & colors -> Advanced button -> Allow pages to choose their own fonts

Thank you Kris_88!!! That fixed my problem. Now to reset 4 computers all dual booting running Pale Moon. Is there any way to remove "ModernWakandan" since it is the problem?

This is not your problem.
Just wait for the site admin.

Not at all. Can't leave the people down-under missing out on the Jester's Festival, now can we?
