hi i am in france and i have been having problems with my internet. i am online thats all fine. when i was starting mozilla i was getting it in french i managed to change that so that i have the uk page. however every now and again i go to a site say miniclip where the language is in french and i dont know how to stop this from happening on some sites. its obviously something that is set in place by region so as to be friendly to the natives but its not helping me any. any help you can offer would be great thanks for your time.

Yes it's done on purpose as many sites read your IP and know where you come from and assume you want the site in French.

You can disable Javascript and that should stop that issue, but will cause some sites to not operate properly so you may need to set which sites you want to allow and those you do not want to allow to run Javascript.
